Haidinger (1795-1871); an Austrian mineralogist and geologist; was the son of the noted mineralogist Karl Haidinger. His principal works were on Austrian geology, the mineralogy of pseudomorphs, meteorites and fossil footprints. He published several works and over 320 papers on these various subjects. In 1827, Haidinger became interested in pseudomorphs and the absorption of light in crystals-the later studies probably sparked by his association with David Brewster in Edinburgh. The results of some of these studies are found in the above three papers.
