XIX International Meeting on Crystal Chemistry, X-ray Diffraction and
Spectroscopy of Minerals is devoted to the memory of great Russian
crystallographer, mineralogist, petrologist and mining engineer Academician E.S.
Fedorov (10(22).12.1853-21.05.1919), one of the founders of modern
crystallography and discoverer of 230 space groups.
In 1891 and 1902, E.S.
Fedorov described for the first time alkaline apatite- and nepheline-bearing
rocks of Kola peninsula (at the Turiy peninsula of the White Sea) and suggested
its possible use for the production of phosphorous fertilizers.
