Gems Material

Volume 55, Part 4, 2017
Editors: L.A. Groat

This thematic issue of The Canadian Mineralogist originates from the special session on Gem Materials at the second European Mineralogical Conference, emc2016 ‘Minerals, fluids and rocks: Alphabet and words of planet Earth,’ held in Rimini, Italy, September 11, 2016.

The research spans 4 continents, 12 countries, and over 50 researchers. It includes an eclectic range of manuscripts and covers tectonic and metamorphic studies as a back drop to gem formation and a number of detailed mineralogical and geochemical studies on individual deposits and occurrences.

The research covers a wide range of analytical techniques, including electron microprobe analyses, stable and radiogenic isotopes, fluid inclusions, and others.
