Bolivia – The Height of Mineral Collecting (English, #12)
Mineral Monograph (formerly extraLapis English) #12
From its mineralogy to its landscape to its personalities, Bolivia is an enigmatic place where anything can and does happen. For centuries, Bolivia’s mines and minerals have influenced its history, attracting conquerors, inciting wars and unrest, and making a few men obscenely rich. Bolivia is an impoverished country, which hosts rich resources. It is home to some of the world’s most inhospitable climes, which are populated by a warm and colorful people. The richness of this land of extremes transcends material wealth, proving irresistible to a cadre of artists, outlaws, adventurers, scientists, and mineral collectors. Welcome to Boilvia, the height of mineral collecting!
