Minerals of Georgia presents an illustrated, alphabetized record of every mineral (or mineral group) identified in the state. Under each entry is a county-by-county listing of every occurrence known, including both widespread species and obscure ones. In addition to economically important mineral deposits, this volume covers various mineral localities within the state that are well known among professional mineralogists, mineral collectors, and rockhounds as the source of outstandingstudy, display, and lapidary material.

Illustrated with over 150 color photographs this guide provides the most current listings and descriptions of mineral occurrences and mining activities documented in Georgia over the past 150 years.

Minerals of Georgia will be invaluable to the mineralogist, collector, and researcher with its definitive and updated listings of the distribution and specific localities of a mineral, the mineral’s association and geologic setting, and the varied mineralogy of a particular county or mineral district. Even the casual reader will gain a better appreciation of Georgia’s diverse mineral treasures.
