PostPosted: Aug 19, 2012 12:56    Post subject: Rocks & Minerals ONLINE  

In the last issue of the always excellent magazine Rocks & Minerals they offer a new feature that I consider very wise and extremely useful. For all subscribers they offer an access online to all content back 1997 as long as they have an active subscription and they can maintain perpetual access to their paid years.

Enthusiastic with this novelty I already sign up and I acceded to the magazine contents like the note from Marie Huizing informing of this new feature as well as two columns related with FMF that I love to copy here (partially, just the first page and low sized) in order to share with the FMFers that synergy of the different agents on line of the mineralogy, like Rocks & Minerals and FMF (for example... ;-)

Congratulations "Turbo"!, congratulations Carl & Tony!

And to complete the previous post I would like to add a plus to the excellent article of Paul W. Pohwat: "Connoisseur's Choice: Siderite", pages 246-257, published in the May/June 2012, Volume 87, Issue 3.

This article mention highly the Siderites of Panasqueira Mines, but for some reason there are no pictures of these Siderites in the article. Well then, I publish two ;-)
