About this book

This is an annotated and illustrated compendium, which focuses on the 76 mineral species first described from Greenland over the interval 1799 (cryolite) to 2005 [qaqarssukite-(Ce)]. The book includes a complete listing of obsolete names and doubtful species in the literature on Greenland occurrences. Included is a gallery of colour photos of 34 photogenic minerals. The authors give a brief historical development of mineralogical investigations in Greenland, with an emphasis on the three intrusive bodies that account for the bulk of the type-locality minerals: the Ilimaussaq alkaline complex (39% of the total), the Ivigtut granite and associated cryolite deposit (22%), and the Narss#rssuk pegmatite (17%). All three are important centers ofGardar anorogenic magmatism, of Mesoproterozoic age. Appendices covering the chronology of mineral discoveries, individual type-localities, chemical classification of the type minerals, and author index, and general references complete the book.
