Coming Soon: Properties of Minerals - A brief introduction


On this page we will inform you in the future about the properties of minerals such as optical properties (color, pleochroism) and chemical properties. In doing so we will focus on providing an introduction to the underlying chemstry and phyics for non-experts. We will also have an introductory section on crystallography. Ultimately, we aim to introduce some easy techniques used to identify minerals such as color of streak, density, cleavage, etc.
