Thank you Matthew. Actually Robert send me that paper (attached)

> Geochemical Perspectives volume by Yardley and Bodnar:
>
> "The occurrence of uid inclusions in minerals has been known for at
> least two millennia. Indeed, Pliny the Elder described what were
> probably uid inclu- sions in crystals in his volume “Natural History”,
> written in about 75 AD. In about 400 AD, Claudius Claudianus wrote a poem
> about a large uid inclusion in a quartz crystal entitled “On a crystal
> enclosing a drop of water”. According to Lemmlein (1950; quoted in Roedder,
> 1984), the rst speci c description of uid inclusions in minerals was by Abu
> Raihan al-Biruni in the 11th century in his book Kitab al-Jawahir (Precious
> Stones). In the 13th century, Ahmad al-Tifashi wrote Azhar al Afkar (Best
> Thoughts on the Best of Stones) in which he mentions inclusions (“uyub”),
> liquid (inclusion) (“ma”), air bubble (“rih”), and mud inclu- sion
> (“teen”). Also, at approximately the same time, Albertus Magnus, a
> German scholar and Archbishop of Cologne, wrote a book on lapidary (“de
> mineralibus”) in which he described uid inclusions in beryl. The earliest
> known description in English was by Robert Boyle (1672), who described a
> moving bubble in a quartz crystal... Fluid inclusions were cited as
> evidence of the hydrothermal origins of ore deposits as early as the
> mid-19th century by Ellie de Beaumont. Soon after, the rst systematic
> studies of uid inclusions (which he termed uid-cavities) were made by H.C.
> Sorby (1858). Sorby demonstrated a range of uid types in rocks and vein
> minerals, and even proposed methods to obtain information about conditions
> of mineral growth. He also linked fluids and mineral formation
> by describing aqueous inclusions in vein quartz, with homogenisation
> tempera- tures that decreased outward from an intrusion, a perfect source
> for ore-forming hydrothermal uids. In those days, papers published by the
> Geological Society of London were rst presented as lectures in a meeting
> room designed to be adversarial: friends and opponents of the speaker lined
> up on opposite sides of the chamber. After Sorby’s talk, the president of
> the society at the time apparently commented that it was the least
> plausible paper he had ever heard presented.”
