Long awaited by professional geologists and amateur rockhounds alike, the new Mineralogy of Arizona is a completely revised and greatly expanded edition of a book first published in 1977 and updated in 1982. New material covers 232 minerals discovered in Arizona since the first edition, including 28 first identified in the state. Also new is a section on the history of Arizona mining and mineralogy, which provides context for understanding the significance of mineral discoveries and production since prehistoric times.This reference includes some 60 new color photographs made possible by a grant from Phelps Dodge Corporation. New, clear maps of Arizona mineral districts will help readers to locate the principal mining areas of the state. Chapters on uranium and vanadium deposits and on Arizona meteorites have been augmented, and a chapter on pegmatites has been added. The section on porphyry-copper-related and other hydrothermal deposits has been expanded to include the classical Tombstone district as well as the areas of Bisbee and Tiger.Funded in part by the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society, the book is directed to all who are interested in minerals - at all levels of interest, from high school students on up. It is also meant to assist geologists concerned with scientific aspects of mineralogy and economic geologists who are searching for mineral commodities that are being depleted rapidly.
