Published bi-monthy, (6 times a year), this is the most authoritative and widely respected mineral collector’s journal in the world; from novice to expert, no serious collector should be without it. Readers learn about important mineral localities old and new, about the fascinating history of mining and mineralogy, and about new mineral species being described. They see reviews of public and private collections, market reports from contemporary mineral shows, columns on special topics, and oversized special issues devoted to entire mineral-rich states and countries. And all of these articles and features are illustrated by abundant top-quality color photography of fine mineral specimens. Copies of the magazine are never discarded like old newspapers, but are carefully saved and collected as reference works of permanent value. This subscription also includes a digital version you can download into your computer. Go to mineralogicalrecord.com for more information.
