New book about Mont Saint-Hilaire: Geology and Mineralory

Posted on Friday, October 11, 2019

Glenn Poirier has produced a new book with a team of mineralogists about the famous Poudrette quarry. At last count, over 434 mineral species have been found at Mont Saint-Hilaire, representing 9% of all known mineral species. Almost half of all known chemical elements are included in this mineral mix. The images capture the colors of Vásárely, the symmetry of Escher, the form of Bartók and the intricate patterns of Mandelbrot, all found here, in this miracle of nature.
