The book begins with a chapter describing the scope and subject matter of geochemistry and giving a brief account of its development. The next chapter deals with the earth as a planet and its relationship to the solar system and universe as a whole and is follwed by a discussion on the internal structure of the earth and its composition. The following chapters deal in turn with the geochemistry of the hydrosphere, the atmosphere and the biosphere. There is then a chapter on metamorphism amd metamorphis rocks and the final chapter is a brief summary and synthesis in terms of the geochemical cycle

Minor and trace elements in meteoritic minerals by Brian Mason( Book )

13 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nickel-iron, troilite, olivine, pyroxenes, plagioclase, chromite, and phosphate minerals (chlorapatite and/or merrillite) have been separated from a number of meteorites (Modoc, St. Severin, Winona, Haraiya, Marjalahti, Springwater, Johnstown, Mt. Egerton, Soroti) and analyzed for minor and trace elements with the spark-source mass spectrometer. The elements Ni, Co, Ge, As, Ru, Rh, Pd, Sn, Sb, W, Re, Os, Ir, Pt, and Au are concentrated in nickel-iron; Se and Ag in troilite; Th, U, and the lanthanides in the phosphate minerals and in diopside; Eu, Sr, Ba, Rb, and Cs in plagioclase. Molybdenum and tellurium are concentrated in nickel-iron and troilite. The elements Ti, Sc, V, Cu, Zn, Mn, and Ga are distributed over several coexisting minerals."--Title page verso
