Summary
For those interested in geology and paleontology, Stinchcomb, who teaches geology at Florissant Valley Community College, describes the minerals and fossils of the early earth, along with many color photos. He focuses on collectable minerals that formed early in the earth's history, especially minerals associated with the older rocks of the earth's crust. He discusses the impact of meteors, the geology of shield areas and their associated rocks and minerals, pegmatite and pegmatite minerals, early minerals and rocks associated with the formation of the atmosphere, unusual minerals linked to early limestone-like rocks, greenstone belts and their connection to the earth's gold deposits, marble and quartz, and xenoliths in igneous granite
