The Minerals Bibliography You've All Been Waiting For

As promised yesterday, I'm posting here a bibliography for minerals. This includes many articles and books I've read in researching the topic for the minerals report we'll be releasing tomorrow, but it is by no means comprehensive. Still, I hope it's a useful resource for readers interested in this topic. I'm marking it with the "bibliography" tag, which you can hit to find reading lists and book reviews any time.
