After a brief account of Scotland's geological evolution, this book details 60 minerals native to Scotland, with their description, history and occurrence. A glossary of all 552 known species is also included. This illustrated study also highlights the pioneering role which Scottish scientists, including Brewster, Jameson, Nicol and Thomson, played in the development of mineralogy.
