Abstract(unpublished)
Foreword
Ann Sabina passed away on September 29, 2015 in her 86th year and will be remembered for her dedication to mineralogy and gemmology. Ann started at the GSC in 1952 in mineralogy working in the new field of X-ray diffraction, at the Victoria Memorial Museum (now Canadian Museum of Nature). Ann was the author of the very popular series "Rocks and Minerals for the Collectors" now available on-line. Ann was co-founder of the Canadian Gemmological Association and was a long serving Treasurer for the Mineralogical Association of Canada. Ann continued to work daily since her retirement in the late nineties up until early August, 2015. Ann was the discoverer of the mineral Weloganite (Na2Sr3Zr(CO3)6·3H2O) and was the first to collect the mineral Sabinaite (Na4TiZr2O4(CO3)4), named in her honour by John Jambor.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
InfoCollSummary Information for Collectors is an outreach publication providing amateur mineral and rock collectors with information on becoming acquainted with minerals and rocks, where to look for them, equipment required, care of specimens, collecting in Canada and Canadian gemstones. It includes lists of books on geology, minerals, rocks, fossils, lapidary, field guides, and geological maps and reports written for collectors. This Open File Report replaces the web version that was available until recently.
