THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO MICROMOUNTS

A manual for mineral collectors with data on selection, mounting, care and display of minerals, both large and small

  

By Milton L. Speckels
  
(Booklet published in 1965)

(Second hand copy in very good condition)
  
Micromounts may be defined as permanently mounted mineral specimens which require magnification and illumination for proper observation. They vary in size from specimens so small they will fit on the head of a pin to pieces about three-quarters of an inch square. 

  

Micromounting is a fascinating branch of mineralogy because micromounts can offer exquisite colour, perfection of crystals, rarity of mineral species and enjoyment of mineral beauty seldom seen in larger specimens.

 

​​​​​​​Published by Gembooks in California. 1965.
