New Minerals

Much of the Phyllosilicates were missing. The Mica and Chlorite Minerals are referenced as accessory minerals in quite a bit of minerals in the system, and since these weren't in the system there was no link to them. Because these minerals are so prevalent, we made sure to add them in. And Talc is quite an important mineral that was missing, being #1 on the Mohs Scale. Here are the new minerals:


Mica Group:

  • Muscovite
  • Phlogopite
  • Biotite
  • Lepidolite

Chlorite Group:

  • Chlorite
  • Clinochlore
  • Cookeite
  • Chamosite
