The focus in our Special Publication volume 10,  Pegmatites, is on the petrogenesis of granitic melts that have achieved an advanced degree of evolution as a result of protracted fractional crystallization.

“The London model not only provides the best-to-date, internally consistent explanation of all aspects of individual pegmatite bodies, but it also fits regional relationships in large pegmatite populations, the connection to plutonic bodies and metamorphic environment.”

– Professor Petr Černý, University of Manitoba
