Can anyone help with the full names, birth cities, and full birth dates for T. A. Kurova and A. V. Bykova? They have named many minerals, but I'm not able to find complete information and would like to add their names to Mindat mineral species pages they are associated with.

Best Wishes, Van King

Van,

From the American Mineralogist, 91,1452 (2006)

"Bykovaite is named to honor analytical chemist Alexandra
Vasilyevna Bykova (1917-2001), who first discovered
that bornemanite could be transformed to a synthetic form of
bykovaite upon treatment with water."

Van,

Sorry, that is all the information I had on Alexandra Vasilyevna Bykova. Nothing on T. A. Kurova.
