About this book

Rare Earth Minerals presents a current overview of this geologically and industrially important group of minerals. It presents a wide variety of formats, crystal structures, petrographic descriptions, analytical data and numerous illustrations from outcrop photos to SEM pictures and crystallographic models.

Both researchers in mineralogy and economic geology and advanced undergraduate students will find much of interest in this comprehensive overview of the geochemistry of this important group of minerals. - Aslib Book Guide; ...strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in RE minerals in general and their deposits in particular; in fact, it can be regarded as essential reading. - Mineralogical Magazine


The rare earth elements - introduction and review; crystal chemical aspects of rare earth minerals; perovskites - a revised classification scheme for an important rare earth element host in alkaline rocks; rare elements in carbonate-rich melts from mantle to crust; formation of rare earth minerals in hydrothermal systems; rare earth mienrals from the syente pegmatites in the Oslo region, Norway; rare earth element mineralization in peralkaline systems - the T-Zonw REE-Y-Be deposit; rare earth minerals in carbonatites - a discussion centred on the Kangankunde Carbonatite, Malawi; REE distribution and REE carriers in laterites formed on the alkaline complexes of Araxa and Catalao (Brazil); authigenic rare earth minerals in karst-bauxites and karstic nickel deposits; rare earth deposits in China; yttrium and rare earth element minerals of the Kola Peninsula, Russia; analysis of rare earth minerals. Appendices: borates; corbonates, fluocarbonates and hydrocarbonates; oxides; halides; silicates; phosphates; arsenates, sulphates and vanadates; uranyl-carbonates and uranyl-silicates.
