British Columbia is not noted for its gem production (except nephrite), at the present time. Exploration and discoveries are mostly by amateur rockhounds. Because of the great diversity of rock formations, B.C. has an immense potential for gemstone discoveries. BIBLIOGRAPHY. Arem, Joe E., Color Encyclopedia of Gemstones. The 6th edition of Introducing Physical Geography is known for its clear writing, distinctive photos and illustrations and a strong supplements program. The text continues its tradition as a great book to help non-science readers visualize and understand earth processes and learn the basic language of .

Summarize the extents, geological origins, and migration of the accreted terranes of British Columbia and Yukon Explain how terrane accretion on the west coast during the Mesozoic contributed to the formation of the Rocky Mountains and how that in turn provided the source material for a thick sequence of Mesozoic sedimentary rock in the WCSB.   British Columbia Government properties, owned outright, are possibly on the chopping/shopping block just like the one reported in the news.
