The volume 41 contains a description of new mineral species: Sokolovaite, Malyshevite and atencioite, a new representative of roscerite group; new data on Roxbyte from contemporary ore-bearing sediments of the Logachev-1 hydrothermal field (Mid. Atlantic Ocean); results of investigations of nicel, cobalt, iron sulfoarsenides and sulfoantimonides and krutovite from metamorphic-hydrothermal carbonate veins of the Norilsk ore field; new data on mineralogy of pegmatite and hydrothermalites of the kovdor phlogopite deposits and mineralogy and genesis of the Novo-Karkodinskoye demandoid deposit (Middle Urals), gold nuggets from Southern Verkhoyania (Yana Upstream region); goetite and lizardite paragenesis is described as typical formation of metakimberlites and hosted xenoliths; structural and genetic relationship of djerfisherite and bartonite; results of investigation of chemical structure of coconinoite and related alumino-uranul phosphates.
In " Mineral Museums and collections" section a historical review on the Fersman Museum activity during the period of the World War II is published together with the description of the last Emperial Easher Egg from Faberge and a review of new specimens in the Fersman Mineralogical Museum collection.
A section "Mineralogical notes" contains popular article on agate genesis, story about beryls on post stamps, and a mineralogical fairy tale "Species and varieties".
