"YUKON PHOSPHATES - MINERALOGY OF THE RAPID CREEK AND BIG FISH AREA, YUKON TERRITORY, CANADA"

 - By G. Robinson, J. Van Velthuizen, H. Gary Ansell, and B. Darko Sturman, 72 pages, 8 1/2 X 11" size, illustrated, available in both hard cover and soft cover editions. This special issue of the "Mineralogical Record" magazine has been compiled by four mineralogists/geologists who represent different branches of the Canadian government. All four of these experts in mineralogy/geology have visited this important, very remote locality in the Yukon Territory. Chapters in the book include a short introduction to the area, information about the location (includes several maps showing the important collecting sites), a short history of the discovery of the area and specimen recovery during the 1970's, followed by information on the geology of the district. The section covering the mineralogy includes detailed descriptions of all of the minerals found in the area, accompanied by black and white, as well color photos of specimens, and crystal drawings. A table lists the more than 80 minerals which have been identified -- 10 of these are new species first described from this locality. An in-depth report on the paragenesis of the deposit is given, followed by a bibliography containing more than 70 entries. This book was originally published by the Mineralogical Record, Inc., Tucson, AZ, as Vol. 23, No. 4 -- the July-Aug 1992 special issue entitled "Yukon Phosphates".

A new section is born, the FLUORESCENT MINERALS. I just began to do UV pictures with minerals specimens from Mont ST. Hilaire I'm so happy with the result that I inserted that new section even if it is not completed and I will add new pictures when I can.

These are the minerals sections I updated with new pictures. Some of those are new specimens and others are same specimens but redone with my Nikon Coolpix 4500. Thrust me it worth the look just for their beauty. When you'll go in the  sections just check the thumbnail pictures with the white back ground it will show you that these are new ones.
