Sorby was the first to systematically study fluid inclusions in minerals but they had been known for many centuries – Bob Bodnar wrote a brief historical summary in the first section of our Geochemical Perspectives article “Fluids in the Continental Crust” a couple of years ago. Sorby’s key paper is available electronically at the Geological Society of London’s Lyell Collection - they digitised all 200 years’ worth of their publications a few years ago. The reference is: HC Sorby 1858, Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society of London, v. 14 p. 453-500.

Sorby did not just study natural inclusions, he also experimented with synthetic ones and with mineral growth morphologies. Some of his original materials have turned up in drawers at the University of Sheffield I believe.

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.”


it’s a pity that this aforementioned society president is not alive today…. he could serve well as trump’s scientific advisor.(just joking, list police)
