Minerals & Gemstone 480x104

Finished editing the Phosphates in the system

We finished editing the Phosphate minerals. The locality info on these minerals was totally outdated. Many new photos from John Betts were also added.

Minerals updated were:

  • Adamite
  • Apatite
  • Mimetite
  • Pyromorphite
  • Vanadinite

There are many more phosphates we will need to index in the site, but at least for now these are the ones time allowed us to get into the system.

Sulfates Completed

We finished editing all the sulfates. This was a large group and took a while. ALL the info on all the minerals was updated, especially the locality details which were very outdated. Here is a the list of sulfates in our system that were updated:

  • Anglesite
  • Anhydrite
  • Barite
  • Brochantite
  • Celestine
  • Chalcanthite
  • Crocoite
  • Cyanotrichite
  • Epsomite
  • Glauberite
  • Gypsum
  • Jarosite
  • Linarite
  • Natrojarosite
  • Thenardite

Varietys and Other Names

We have completed the Varietys and Other Names, and they are linkable and indexed. There is a listing page that lists every known variety and other name for the minerals indexed in our database. And every page that mentions a variety name is also linkable to that mineral. This was a huge feat but it is finally complete and working!
