Mineral Collections in Arizonaby Wendell E. Wilson, Editor
For the mineral collector there is no place like Arizona. Mineral Collections in Arizona is a lavishly illustrated description of both public and private mineral collections in the state, with well over 700 specimens pictured. Included are: Notes on the history of mineral collecting in Arizona, the history of the Arizona collector clubs (the Arizona Mineral Minions in the Phoenix area and the Mineral Enthusiasts of the Tucson Area), a biography of the famous collector Ed Over (1905-1963) who made fabulous discoveries at the Red Cloud and Hilltop mines, and biographical notes about the 59 participants who are letting us have a look at their favorite specimens. This publication is a unique and beautiful record of hundreds of fine mineral specimens rarely, if ever, seen by the public.
