Biographical or Historical Note


George E. Harlow works at the American Museum of Natural History as a Curator, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Division of Physical Sciences and Professor, Richard Gilder Graduate School. Trained as a geologist specializing in mineralogy and crystallography, Dr. Harlow has concentrated his research on the chemistry and structure of minerals as tools for understanding their origin and the record of geological processes they contain. This interest and questions about specimens in the gem collection led him to a long-term study of jadeite rock, used as jade, and related rocks from the Motagua Valley in Guatemala and, more recently, Myanmar (Burma), Japan and Cuba.
