Mineral Systematics

The purpose of this project is to diversify the number of New York mineral species; find new species; and understand their distribution, association, composition, origin, and petrologic significance. Until recently the project has focused on the amphibole- and tourmaline-group minerals, but there is also ongoing research on other mineral groups.
