The principal goal of this article is to present the important minerals from the New York State iron deposits. Not all the minerals identified in these deposits can be seen by the naked eye; some are found only in thin sections, and others are not aesthetically impressive, making them of limited collector interest. In general, these will not be noted here, except for those that represent very rare occurrences; they will be mentioned along with their localities, but with no detailed descriptions.
