Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The members of the spinel group are frequent accessory minerals of both igneous and metamorphic rocks and occur also as detrital grains in many sediments. Many spinels can be important for their industrial application, and some of them constitute important ore deposits.
The idea coming from this second issue dedicated to spinel group minerals is to bring together, once again, specialists from different fields in order to acquire new knowledge on the geological history and industrial applications of these important minerals that can tell us so much about the interior of the Earth as well as the story of meteorites.
Spectoscopic, as well as provenance or archeometric studies are welcome for submission.
