About this book

Photo Atlas of Mineral Pseudomorphism provides a comprehensive overview on the topic of pseudomorphism – in which one mineral is replaced by another but still maintains its original crystal form – a phenomenon that is far more common than currently thought and is extremely important in understanding the geologic history of rocks. There are many examples of pseudomorphs, but they have never been brought together in a single reference book that features high-resolution, full-color pseudomorph formations together with the original minerals that they have replaced. Photo Atlas of Mineral Pseudomorphism is the essential reference book for mineralogists, geologists or anyone who encounters mineral pseudomorphism in their work.

- Presents the only reference book on mineral pseudomorph formations
- Contains 500 high-resolution full-colour photos, along with a theoretical explanation of the geological processes that resulted in the pseudomorph formation
- Authored by J. Theo Kloprogge, who has more than 25 years of experience as a mineralogist

Biography

J. Theo Kloprogge MSc Geology, PhD Geology/Chemistry, is an Honorary Senior Fellow, at School of Earth Sciences, University of Queensland, and Editor/Author of CMS Workshop Lectures Volume 13 - The Application of Vibrational Spectroscopy to Clay Minerals and Layered Double Hydroxides. During the past 25+ years, Dr Kloprogge has been working as a mineralogist and spectroscopist. The results of this work have been published in more than 250 papers in international peer reviewed journals as well as in a number of book chapters. He has been collecting minerals for more than 35 years and has built an extensive collection both for research and private use.

A collector from the age of 12, Dr Robert Lavinsky first started participating in mineral shows at the age of 14. He initially planned to launch his career in molecular genetics and received his doctoral degree from UC-San Diego, but his passion for minerals led to a career change. Rob realized the potential to move the mineral world online and www.iRocks.com became the first mineral-selling website online in 1996. Since then, he has been a full-time dedicated mineral dealer and recently had a new mineral, Lavinskyite, named after him.
