NEW TITLE “MINERALS & PRECIOUS STONES OF BRAZIL”, by C. Cornejo and A. Bartorelli, pages, 9 3/8” X 6 7/8” (24 X 18 cm), English language, with 1, beautiful color photographs, plus engravings, maps, and drawings, pictorial hard new book, “Minerals & Precious Stones of Brazil”, is unique in its kind. The first 98 pages present a vast historical and iconographic. In general this book is good as an Introduction to radioactive minerals. It covers the formation, localities and the minerals itself. It is thus quite broad, and the only book of which I know that covers the wordlwide occurence of uranium and thorium by: 2. Another valuable source of information of the geochemistry of uranium and thorium minerals is the U.S. Geological Survey bulletin , Systematic Mineralogy of Uranium and Thorium. Dana’s New Mineralogy has proven to be very valuable in verifying much of the data listed in this site. This is a fascinating book about the history of uranium. Primarily, it is about the mining of uranium, and secondarily about its use in bombs and in nuclear power plants, and the security (or lack of it) surrounding the mineral. The author has a very engaging style, that keeps one interested all the way through the book/5.
uranium, along with small quantities of thorium, niobium, and tantalum. No concentrations of this type have yet been exploited successfully. Many zoned pegmatites in uranium provinces contain specimen quantities of some or many of the complex four-valent uranium minerals and their six-valent uranium alteration by: 6. USGS field and laboratory studies led to just such a discovery, approved and announced by the International Mineralogical Association – Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification with the naming of a newly discovered mineral, “finchite.” Finchite is a greenish-yellow uranium mineral that has been named after long-time USGS uranium geologist Warren Finch. 1 U 3 0 8 is the symbol for a chemical compound, uranium oxide, composed of three atoms of uranium to eight atoms of oxygen. Most chemical assays for uranium are expressed in terms of U 3 0 8, and ore purchases are made on that uranium content equals approximately 85 per cent of the assay expressed in terms of U 3 0 8. 2 Hardness of minerals is related to Moh's scale of 1 to 10 using. The low crustal abundance of uranium belies its mineralogical and geochemical significance: more than five percent of minerals known today contain uranium as an essential constituent. Uranium is a geochemical and geochronological indicator, and the U-Pb decay series has long been one of the most important systems for dating rocks and minerals.
