Paper, 'On rocks and minerals collected by Mr W M Conway in the Karakoram-Himalayas' by Thomas George Bonney and Catherine Alice Raisin

Reference number: PP/23/33

Date: 1894

Description

The authors write: 'During his journey in the Karakoram Himalayas, Mr. W. M. Conway collected more than 300 specimens of rocks and minerals, which, however, were generally rather small. These were sent to us for examination at University College, London. Thin slices have been prepared of the specimens which promised to be the more interesting. Of the rest, the mineral composition was verified in cases of doubt by examining pulverised fragments under the microscope.'
