Key Collecting Localities and Their Fluorescent Minerals

  • Manuel Robbins


Gold is where you find it. This phrase expressed the gold prospector’s occasional perplexity that there seemed to be neither rhyme nor reason in where gold was to be found. However, the experienced prospector knew, in fact, that there was a pattern in where gold might be found, and he knew also that he might expect certain other minerals in close association with the precious metal.
