Highly Siderophile and Strongly Chalcophile Elements in High-Temperature Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry. JASON HARVEY AND JAMESM.D. DAY, EDITORS. 2016. Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry, vol. 81. Mineralogical Society of America. 774 p. ISBN 978-0-939950-97-3. US$50.

This book constitutes a comprehensive summary of the existing knowledge of the highly siderophile elements (HSE, which comprise the platinum group elements [PGE], Au, and Re) from their formation during nucleosynthesis to their abundances and geochemistry in planetary bodies and magmatic sulfide deposits. There is also a significant amount of coverage of Re-Pt-Os systematics. While this book will be an excellent reference source for...
