About this book

The fascinating world of Nunavut's diverse rocks and minerals is vividly presented in this richly visual, informative book. Through beautiful photographs and a broad range of information – each account includes an absorbing "Did You Know?" section with facts – readers will learn about the appearances, traditional and modern uses, and environments of eastern Arctic rocks and minerals. Rocks and Minerals of Nunavut covers everything from diamond to granite, from the most precious to the most common stone. The distinct geology presented in Rocks and Minerals of Nunavut will show readers that, far from a barren land of ice and snow, Nunavut hosts a vibrant environment.

Nunavut is the largest, northernmost and newest territory of Canada. It was separated officially from the Northwest Territories on April 1, 1999, via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement.
