Soon to be published: 'Mineralogy for Amateurs'

6 July 2010

Many mineral collectors already own the original work by the late John Sinkankas - 'Mineralogy for Amateurs' and it containa what we think is still the most well-written chapters on crystallography.  So much has happened with new localities and discoveries since the original that it was time for an update.
