This directory provides a listing of minerals arranged by Powder X-ray Diffraction (XRD) data . XRD is one of the primary techniques used to examine the physico-chemical make-up of unknown solids, in which a powdered sample is illuminated with X rays of a fixed wavelength and the intensity of the reflected radiation is recorded using a goniometer. Minerals are arranged in increasing order of D1 spacing, ... Full description.

This web page provides an interactive petrological database of the ocean floor. The ultimate goal is to provide a robust, complete reference data library for the petrology and whole earth science communities. Users enter search parameters such as geographical name, latitude, longitude, elevation, tectonic setting, expedition name and chemistry, and receive information on the petrological condition ...

This is a large database of minerals that can be sorted either alphabetically or arranged systematically. Users can access minerals by name, elements, sulfides, halides, oxides, carbonates, sulfates, phosphates, silicates, organic minerals, or by variety. Once located, the properties of the mineral are displayed, including its chemical formula, crystal system, and location. Users can also access photos ... Full description.

This directory provides a listing of mineral species under the Strunz system, a chemical-structural system for classifying minerals. Clicking on each class (elements, sulfides, oxides/hydroxides, etc.) provides a listing of all minerals that conform to that class. Each mineral name is a link aditional information on the mineral.
