Minerals first discovered in Canada and Species Named after Canadians


English Language: English

Author: Laszlo Horvath

Edited by: Robert F. Martin

Reviews

This annotated and illustrated compendium focuses on the 206 mineral species discovered in Canada or redefined from Canadian localities in the last 222 years. It also highlights 30 minerals named after Canadians but discovered outside Canada, and includes a section on obsolete names of mineral species first described from Canadian localities.
The book also gives a brief historical overview of works documenting mineralogy in Canada from its beginning in 1752 to the present.
Appendices covering the chronology of mineral discoveries, individual type-localities, type-mineral specimens and their repositories, chemical classification of type minerals, an author index, and general references complete this book.
