|Minerals Arranged by X-Ray Powder Diffraction|
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, with D2 and D3 spacings also provided. Each mineral name is a link to additional information on the mineral.
