Pegmatites International is a site intended for those who have experienced the Wonderful World of “Pegmatology” (the study of pegmatites) and want to know more. It’s designed for the non-pegmatite specialist, the professional geologist and the beginning and graduate student. It will offer a good starting point for both general and advanced information and provide a greater insight and understanding of these unusual rocks. For the researcher, this will be an excellent place to share information with your colleagues. Our goal at Pegmatites International is to serve as a broad primer for more general and specialized study; to serve as a forum for the exchange of information; to review the state of “pegmatology” and address the problems to be solved in the future.
