Description
Summary:A historical study on the mineral species first described from the Carpathian region is written by the author. Main stages of the research history (first description, major changes in the status of the species, discreditation etc.) are reviewed on the basis of original publications. This paper is an extended and modified version of the preface to that study. After a brief survey of the previous works (regional and international) the geographical and mineralogical scope of this research is discussed. The most important problems of the topic are demonstrated with the examples of several mineral species. A list of valid mineral species first described from the Carpathian region is also given together with some statistical considerations based on this list.
