Minerals of Nevada
Nevada has an extraordinary diversity of minerals, some of them unique to the state and some the focus of human exploitation for millennia. Minerals of Nevada is the first synoptic catalog of Nevada minerals, listing every mineral found in the state along with the places where they occur. The book includes the geologic history of the state, the history of mining in Nevada, descriptions of significant mineral deposits and mining districts, maps, and an album of striking color photographs of rare and important minerals.
Co-published with the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology.
“I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in minerals and mineral deposits in Nevada. The color photos provide striking images of many minerals that the average collector is unlikely ever to see except by visiting multiple museums. The exhaustive listing of minerals, their chemical formulas, and their generalized parageneses are bound to educate most users and stimulate their curiosity.” —David A. John, Economic History
“Minerals of Nevada is an exceptional book, an absolute requirement for the library of anyone interested in geographic mineralogy or the mineral occurrences of the great state of Nevada.” —Robert B. Cook, Rocks & Minerals, July/August 2004

The long-awaited Minerals of Nevada is now available and is clearly a fine, comprehensive treatment of one of our most important mineral-producing states. . . . This exceptional book . . . is an absolute requirement for the library of anyone interested in geographic mineralogy or the mineral occurrences of the Great State of Nevada. -- Media Reviews
