Volume 61 of the MSA’s influential Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry series seems, at first glance, to be a reprise of Volume 1, published in 1974 under the title Sulfide Mineralogy. However, a closer look quickly reveals just how far sulfide mineral studies have come in the succeeding 32 years. A few chapters have similar titles; for example, chapters on crystal structures, chemical bonding, and phase equilibria, but the chapter contents of Volume 61 are both up-to-date and major advances on their predecessors.
The biggest difference between Volumes 1 and 61 is not the updating of older topics, but...
