Detailed Images

Follow the movement of minerals as they travel from Mexican mines to markets, museums, and private collections on both sides of the US-Mexico border. The author describes how and why byproducts of ore mining come to be valued by people in various walks of life as scientific specimens, religious offerings, works of art, and extravagant collectibles. This story of mineral exploration and trade sheds light on the complex relationship between the two countries, and on the process of making value.
