More Articles Added

We add newsletters to the web site when they are published. We also add other content, but normally don't publish the fact it has been added. In the case of major additions, we make an exception.

We have added 10 pages to the Articles section, mostly in the About Minerals and in the Hints and Tips sections. We hope you enjoy them.
