About this book

Alkaline rocks and carbonatites have the most varied and extreme composition of all igneous rocks. This volume describes all known occurrences in the former USSR, illustrated with 250 locality and geology maps and provides a comprehensive account of their nature, diversity and economic aspects.

'...this volume will be immensely valuable to anyone involved in alkalic rock/carbonatite research whatever their interest...The authors are...to be congratulated on an enormous undertaking over such a huge geographical region and an immensely scattered literature.' Geological Magazine
