Pyrite : a natural history of fool's gold by David T Rickard( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2020 in English and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people have heard of pyrite, the brassy yellow mineral commonly known as fool's gold. But despite being the most common sulfide on the earth's surface, pyrite's bright crystals have attracted a noteworthy amount of attention from many different cultures, and its nearly identical visual appearance to gold has led to tales of fraud, trickery, and claims of alchemy. Pyrite occupies a unique place in human history: it became an integral part of mining lore in America during the 19th century, and it has a presence in ancient Sumerian texts, Greek philosophy, and medieval poetry, becoming a symbol for anything overvalued. In 'Pyrite', geochemist and author David Rickard blends basic science and historical narrative to describe the many unique ways pyrite makes appearances in our world. He follows pyrite back through the medieval alchemists to the ancient Arab, Chinese, Indian, and Classical worlds, showing why the mineral was central to the development of these various ancient cultures. Pyrite can be tracked to the beginnings of humankind, and Rickard reveals how it contributed to the origins of our art and storytelling and even to our biologic development as humans
Sulfidic sediments and sedimentary rocks by David T Rickard( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The geochemistry and chemistry of sulfur, iron and iron sulfides in sedimentary systems is reviewed. Sulfur microbiology is described and the microbial ecology of sulfidic sediments is discussed. Sulfur and iron stable isotope biochemistry is addressed against the background of recent advances in this field with respect to sedimentary and microbial systems. Environmental aspects of the present sedimentary sulfur cycle are considered with special references to the development of euxinia and global anoxic events. The biogeochemistry of ancient sulphur-rich sediments is considered and the evolution of the sedimentary sulfur system is discussed against the background of the evolution of the Earth surface environment. The evolution of the sulfur biome and its impact of the early development of life on Earth are discussed."--Cover
Geochemistry and mineralization of Proterozoic volcanic suites( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume comprises many of the papers, representing all the continents (except Antarctica) given at a special meeting held at Keyworth in April 1986. It does not attempt to provide a complete survey of Proterozoic volcanic geochemistry and mineralisation: there is an inevitable bias towards coverage of the comparatively well explored Precambrian shields of Europe and North America

Framboids by David T Rickard( )

5 editions published between 1901 and 2021 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Framboids may be the most astonishing and abundant natural features you have never heard of. These microscopic spherules of golden pyrite consist of thousands of even smaller microcrystals often arranged in stunning geometric arrays. There are probably 1030 on Earth and they are forming at a rate of 1020 every second. This means that there are a billion times more framboids than sand grains on Earth and a million times more framboids than stars in the observable universe. They are all around us: they can be found in rocks of all ages and in present-day sediments, soils and natural waters. The sulfur in the pyrite is mainly produced by bacteria and many framboids contain organic matter. They are formed through burst nucleation of supersaturated solutions of iron and sulfide followed by limited crystal growth in diffusion-dominated stagnant sediments. The framboids self-assemble as surface free energy is minimized and the microcrystals are attracted to each other by surface forces. Self-organization occurs through entropy maximization and the microcrystals rotate into their final positions through Brownian motion. The final shape of the framboids is often actually polygonal or partially facetted rather than spherical, as icosahedral microcrystal packing develops. Their average diameter is around 6 microns and the average microcrystal size is about 0.1 microns. There is no significant change in these dimensions with time: the framboid is an exceptionally stable structure and the oldest may be 2.9 billion years old. This means that they provide samples of the chemistry of ancient environments"--

Australia's refugee policy : the rhetoric and the reality by David T Rickard( Book )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wave of Irian refugees flooding across the border into Papua New Guinea in September 1986 has again raised the issues of Australia's policy towards this refugee group. The author examines the following points: Australia's response to the Irian Jayan refugee problem; the reasons for this response; the relations with Indonesia; Australia's obligations under existing principles of international law; Australia's efforts to improve protection for refugees; Australia's rhetoric and the policy options for Irian Jayan refugees
