About this book

For nearly 20 years, Mineralogy of Arizona has been respected as the definitive reference on Arizona minerals. Now completely revised and greatly expanded with breathtaking new color photographs, the third edition covers 232 minerals discovered in Arizona since the first edition, including 28 first identified in the state.

"This book is among the best of the various US state and regional guides to minerals and their localities. Arizona minerals are of popular interest, and Arizona mineral specimens are especially apparent in collections and museums throughout the world. The authors, respected academic mineralogists, have directed this expanded update of two widely used earlier editions to the needs of the professional geologist and the serious mineral collector."
Choice

"This handsome edition, like its predecessors, is the definitive source of information on Arizona minerals. The size of this exceptional work is more than double that of the first and second editions [...] Essential for anyone interested in Arizona's minerals, from the novice to the professional geologist."
Arizona Mineral Resources

"The section of color plates of 60 showy specimens is in perfect color registration, and the extensive bibliography makes this a mineralogy sourcebook for any person or any collection with an interest in the subject."
