Minerals of Ohio, Bulletin 69 (2nd Ed.), by Ernest H. Carlson, 290 p., 102 figures, 12 tables, four appendices, and index, 2015
The new Bulletin 69: Minerals of Ohio (second edition) is designed for a wide audience, from rock hounds to experienced mineralogists, and is completely re-envisioned to honor the legacy of its author, the late Dr. Ernest H. Carlson. Bulletin 69 examines 55 mineral species found throughout the state. The hard-cover book features a beautiful fluorite specimen, while the interior is adorned with full-color, high-resolution photographs and detailed maps and illustrations. Beginners will greatly benefit from chapters on identifying and describing minerals and on key field trip sites, while experienced collectors and mineralogists will value an extensive catalog describing mineral occurrences at more than 600 locations in 79 Ohio counties.
