Elizabeth Emma Ferry traces the movement of minerals as they
circulate from Mexican mines to markets, museums, and private
collections on both sides of the US-Mexico border. She describes
how and why these byproducts of ore mining come to be valued by
people in various walks of life as scientific specimens, religious
offerings, works of art, and luxury collectibles. The story of
mineral exploration and trade defines a variegated transnational
space, shedding new light on the complex relationship between these
two countries and on the process of making value itself.
