Granite pegmatite crystals have long been admired by gem and mineral collectors as a source of fine specimens and gem materials. Pegmatites can host important deposits of ore minerals and industrial commodities, such as feldspar and mica. Their physical and chemical complexity presents daunting challenges to researchers who seek to better understand their nature and origins. With 209 stunning color photos and clear, authoritative text, this book provides a thorough discussion. Chapters cover pegmatite forms and distributions, interior structures, crystal, mineral, and gem pockets, and references for further study. Examples are from North America as well as worldwide.
