DescriptionSince the first edition of Bulletin 149 was published in 1941, Volume I of the revised Dana's System of Mineralogy has been published. A tremendous amount of new data on the elements, sulfides, sulfosalts and oxides has thus been made available, and based on this data the groupings and order of these minerals have been radically changed from that appearing in Dana's Textbook of Mineralogy, on which the first edition of this publication was based. As the revision of the System will undoubtedly remain the standard mineralogical reference for many years, it was deemed advisable to arrange the minerals in Bulletin 149 to conform to that appearing in the new System, in spite of the fact that Volume I covers only about one third of the described species. This has been done, and all new mineralogical data on the elements, sulfides, sulfosalts, and oxides applicable to this publication, have been included. 101 p.
