For students of geology, this book offers a systematic overview of uranium and thorium minerals, which are known for their intense ultraviolet fluorescence and are critically important as our source of nuclear energy.4/5(2).   The descriptive mineralogy is followed by determinative tables in which the mineral species are arranged according to their Xray powderdiffraction interplanar spacings, chemical composition, optical properties, color, specific gravity, and fluorescence.

The book not only provides a comprehensive overview of the mineralogy and crystallography of uranium- and thorium-bearing minerals, but also describes the geologic context of radioactive mineral deposits. Mineralogy of Uranium and Thorium. Name: For its content of thorium, in turn named for Thor, Scandinavian god of war. References: (1) Dana, E.S. () Dana's system of mineralogy, (6th edition), { (2) Pabst, A. () X-ray examination of uranium and thorium. In general this book is good as an Introduction to radioactive minerals. It covers the formation, localities and the minerals itself. It is thus quite broad, and the only book of which I know that covers the wordlwide occurence of uranium and thorium s:

If you want to purchase a copy of “Systematic Mineralogy of Uranium and Thorium”, by C. Frondel (USGS Bulletin ) for your reference library, please refer to the following page on our web site. This is an absolute “must have” reference book for anyone interested in radioactive minerals! This book provides a systematic overview of the mineralogy of uranium and thorium-bearing minerals, generously illustrated with nearly color photos and electron micrographs of representative specimens. Dr. Lauf has also included an historical discussion of the discovery of radioactive elements and the development of uranium and thorium ore. The compilation of this glossary is part of a continuing systematic survey of data on uranium and thorium minerals and on minerals that contain traces or more of uranium or thorium. The near-surface mineralogy of uranium and thorium provide a measure of a planet’s geotectonic and geobiological history. In the absence of extensive magmatic-related fluid reworking of the crust and upper mantle, uranium and thorium will not become sufficiently concentrated to form their own .
