“Word to the Wise”
Rocks & Minerals Magazine by Dr. John Rakovan

An Index Prepared by Dakota Matrix Minerals

In true textbook fashion, Rocks & Minerals quasi-monthly article “Word to the Wise” authored by Dr. John Rakovan and published by Taylor & Francis offers clarifying descriptions of unique geological deposits, mineralogical phenomenon, and analytical techniques.  Rakovan is an executive editor of Rocks & Minerals and professor on mineralogy and geochemistry at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Below is a chronological listing of the thus far published “Word to the Wise” articles through 2010. Please contact us for available Rocks and Minerals back-issues at dmmcart@gmail.com.
