Mineralogy of uranium and thorium (R.J. Lauf)

September 1, 2018

As stated by the author in this 352-page book’s preface, the intention is to present “a systematic guide to uranium and thorium minerals and their occurrences for the serious student or mineral collector seeking to better understand the specimens in his or her collection.” A secondary purpose is to provide an up-to-date reference to the mineralogy of radioactive raw materials for the exploration geologist. The author emphasizes that this is not a guidebook designed to direct amateur mineral collectors to mineral collection localities.
