I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in minerals and mineral deposits in Nevada. Gregory C. Ferdock is the owner of CGF Geological Resources and a consulting mineralogist and economic geologist.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in minerals and mineral deposits in Nevada. The color photos provide striking images of many minerals that the average collector is unlikely ever to see except by visiting multiple museums. The exhaustive listing of minerals, their chemical formulas, and their generalized parageneses are bound to educate most users and stimulate their curiosity. Series: Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology Special Publication (Book 31). Paperback: 560 pages.

A synoptic catalogue of Nevada's minerals, this reference lists every mineral found in the state along with the places where each occurs. Also included are essays on the geologic history of Nevada, a history of mining and mineral study and tips for collectors.
  • I must say that this book is difinitive in it's completeness and revelence in Nevada. The authors have done a marvelous and thorough job of data collection and presentation. Nevada's mining scene has changed dramatically from the early 70's when I was an undergraduate in Geology at the University of Nevada, Reno. This book ties that scene with today's mining activities, and is complete and extremely useful for those foraging in Nevada for mineral and mining history and for collectors as well.

  • Long live Stephen and his mineral fact-filled mind. Stephen B. Castor weaves a passionate and hypnotizing tale using his cunning and ingenuity in this exciting epic. I especially liked the part where he said "rock rock rock, rockrockrock!" These proverbial words really reached deep inside of me and changed my emotional state. Before, one might have compared my status to that of a hopeless stray kitten stumbling about the streets of brooklyn, drenched in rain and tears of sorrow. Now, I find myself overwhelmed by a sensation of bliss, or possibly even sublimity. I am a new and better person because of Stephen B. Castor. Thank you Stephen for all you have done. We salute you!

  • This book is a gift from God. It touched my heart to the very core. Stephen B. Castor Bo Bastor, Master of Disaster, has really given us a gem here. I say that the handsomely stubbled face of Mr. Castor should be placed upon the gleaming slopes of Mount Rushmore so his visage can beam out to the mountains around with an expression that just says "Hello World! I love rocks! what about you?" His romantically red beard should be placed on posters everywhere, so all may wonder at the vastness of it. I want to be Stephen B. Castor. I want all sceintific reasearch from now on to be devoted to a machine which can make me into stephen B. Castor. I am going to get plastic surgery to make me look like him. He is God. We should have his face placed on each and every religious figure in THE WORLD! think you have been touched by God? well, it was Stephan B. Castor, IN DISGUISE. yes, in order to preserve his secret identity, Stephen B. Castor must disguise himself. but we know your secret now, Mr. Castor! ALL HAIL STEPHEN!!!!!

  • This is a book from GOD. Stephan B. CastorBoBastor, the master of disaster, has truly written a gem here. WE cannot compare to his geological PROWESS. all must bow before the bearded, exquisitely handsome face of stephen. WE must put his picture up across the country on walls, grinning at all the people as if to say "Hello world! I like rocks!how about you!?" Stephen is God. we shall go into the places of worship and place idols of Stephen upon them. we will carve his face onto Mount Rushmore. ALL HAIL STEPHEN!!!!!! He has led us through the dark ages, and heles us get through the cancelation of the show "Growing Pains" He will give those with him the power to breath fire and grow a really hot red beard. BOW TO THE MASTER OF ALL EROSION, OF THE MOUNTAINS, OF YOUR LIFE, AND BOW TO THE MAN WHO'S PET IGUANA SPIFFY WILL DETERMINE WEATHER YOU GO TO GEOLOGICAL PARIDISE IN THE AFTER LIFE, OR BURN FOREVER IN THE FIRE OF ASTROLOGICAL HELL!!!!(geologists and astrologers are mortal enemies.satan is in the face of every astronomer)

  • I only gave the third star because it is immense. Otherwise, the book reads like a dictionary and an old one at that! The book only lists mines where these minerals can be found and this is not surprising since the author works for the Nevada Bureau of Mines. One instance tells of one mine that a certain mineral can be found and lists it as extremely rare. If this is the case, I will be rich soon because I can find 6X the specimen size within 10 minutes of my house without digging.

    The photos are nice but there are not enough to do any justice to the book. A better layout would have been to include photos with the descriptions. I don't recommend this book unless you have the time to research photos of each item (thousands), print them and add them to the book. You will also spend years writing to the claim owners to get permission to look for these but good luck trying to keep your own specimen.

  • Great book; very useful.
