Mineralogical Magazine is an international journal of mineral sciences, published six times a year, which covers the fields of mineralogy, crystallography, geochemistry, petrology, environmental geology and economic geology. This journal is available in print and as an e-journal. The journal has been published continuously since the founding of the Society in 1876 and is a leading journal in its field. As well as research papers the journal also includes book reviews.
Librarians, please note, a complimentary subscription to Elements magazine is supplied as part of your subscription to Mineralogical Magazine.
Mineralogical Magazine is an online and paper journal. The online versions are available at Publishing Technology and Geoscience World.
LIBRARIANS: PLEASE NOTE THAT SINCE 2012, THE ONLINE VERSION OF MINERALOGICAL MAGAZINE HAS INCLUDED EXTRA ISSUES NOT AVAILABLE IN PAPER FORM. PLEASE VISIT THE JOURNAL'S ONLINE SITES (LINKS ABOVE) TO SEE THE FULL CONTENT.

A review of the structural architecture of tellurium oxycompounds
A.G. Christy, S.J. Mills and A.R. Kampf
Relative to its extremely low abundance in the Earth’s crust, tellurium is the most mineralogically diverse chemical element, with over 160 mineral species known that contain essential Te, many of them with unique crystal structures. This work reviews the crystal structures of 703 tellurium oxysalts for which good refinements exist, including 55 that are known to occur as minerals.
This paper is open access and the tables are deposited on our website: http://www.minersoc.org/pages/e_journals/dep_mat_mm.html
The November 2014 issue of the journal is an online only, open access issue made possible by by funding received from the European Commission in the framework of Marie Curie Integrated Training Networks MINSC (290040) and CO2 react (317235).
The objectives of the CO2-REACT network are: (1) to provide urgently needed training in CO2 storage, preparing candidates for critical roles in the coming years and (2) to significantly advance understanding of the fate and consequences of CO2 injection into the subsurface during carbon storage efforts.
MINSC is a European FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) that addresses the current and future challenges of mineral scale formation. The research themes of MINSC relate to the mechanisms of nucleation, growth and inhibition of mineral-scale formation through experimental and field projects. Scale formation is encountered in a large number of industries including paper-making, chemical manufacturing, cement operations, food processing, as well as non-renewable, (i.e., oil and gas) and renewable (i.e., geothermal) energy production.
The issue was guest edited by Thomas Rinder and Tomasz Stawski.
On the occasion of the 2014 International Year of Crystallography, the Editorial Board of the Mineralogical Magazine, the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland’s seminal journal, has dedicated a special issue commemorating the role crystallography plays within mineralogy and the mineral sciences. A set of papers by members of Board, as well as special invitees, showcases the different crystallographic techniques used to characterise minerals. Several review articles also explore the crystallography of important mineral groups. This special issue will serve as a lasting tribute to the impact that crystallography has had on mineralogy.
