Khibina and Lovozero--the major alkaline massifs in the Kola Peninsula--contain almost 500 minerals and are the type locality for 109 new minerals. This most mineral-rich region in the world is authoritatively and systematically documented in Mineralogy of Hyperagpaitic Alkaline Rocks. Written by a renowned expert in the field, the book offers a detailed description of hyperagpaitic rocks and their characteristic minerals, including many discovered by the author himself. Particular attention is paid to the physio-chemical conditions of hyperagpaitic rock formation, their significance as ore guides and carriers (such as rare metals, phosphorus, and alkaline salts), and their value as inexhaustible sources of new minerals. The most comprehensive guide to the subject available, the book will be welcomed by students, researchers, and amateurs interested in mineralogy, crystallography, and geochemistry.
