Caption: Mineral properties. 18th-century journal page illustrating experiments carried out to ascertain the innate electrical properties of the mineral tourmaline. These experiments were conducted by the Swedish chemist and mineralogist Torbern Bergman (1735-1784). This page is from volume 56 (1766) of the journal 'Philosophical Transactions', published by the Royal Society of London. Bergman was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1765, publishing a large collection of chemical affinity tables in 1775.
