Dutrowite: Newly Discovered Mineral Named for LSU Geology Professor Barb Dutrow

Like stars and ships, it's rare for a new mineral to be named after a living person. Exactly that honor was accorded in December to LSU mineralogist Dr. Barb Dutrow by the International Mineralogical Association. The new mineral "dutrowite” is a member of the tourmaline family of gemstone minerals.
