Item description for Mineralogy And Geology of Rare Earths in China by Yang Xueming...
This volume aims to present recent achievements in rare-Earth elements geology and mineralogy studies in China. The authors systematically describe all rare-Earth minerals and rare-Earth ore deposits discovered in China and their geological features. The rare-Earth minerals include huanghoite and baotite from China, as well as rare-Earth minerals from other parts of the world, and new species and varieties discovered in China. For each mineral, a systematic description of classification is given, such as chemical composition, crystallography and crystal structure, physical properties and X-ray powder data. The book should be of interest to geoscientists who are interested in both the theoretical and practical study of mineralogy.

An Outstanding Description of Chinese REE-Bearing Deposits Aug 2, 2007
In common with many other books on this subject, this one begins with a description of the chemistry and geochemistry of rare earth elements. There is also discussion of the rare earth elements in lunar samples.
A large section of the book describes rare earth minerals in considerable detail. Color photographs are also provided of the same.
Most books on the REEs (rare earth elements) tend to be rather theoretical. This book, in contrast, includes an excellent summary of Chinese REE deposits (pp. 171-190). Details are given of each location, geologic environments, mineralogy, ore deposits, etc. There is also a broad-based description of REE occurrences in granites, alkaline rocks, carbonatites, skarns, pegmatites, metamorphic rocks, hydrothermal systems, sedimentary rocks, and placer deposits.
The book concludes with a description of the fleeting radioactive REE element Promethium (Pm).
