Minerals of Northern England

By (author) R.F. Symes; By (author) B. Young

The book encompasses the minerals of Cumbria, Co. Durham, Yorkshire, Cleveland and Northumberland. The book falls into five main headings: the geology of northern England; the mines and minerals; mining; collecting and collectors; the minerals – this is a gallery of whole and half page photographs of individual specimens, mainly held in the collection of the National History Museum, London or the Royal Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh. The specimens have been selected for the aesthetic appeal or for their scientific, historical or other interest. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief mineralogical or historical explanation.
