Classification of silicate minerals

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list gives an overview of the classification of minerals (silicates) and includes mostly IMA recognized minerals and its groupings. This list complements the alphabetical list on List of minerals (complete) and List of minerals. Rocks, ores, mineral mixtures, non-IMA approved minerals and non-named minerals are mostly excluded. Mostly major groups only, or groupings used by New Dana Classification and Mindat.

Classification of minerals[edit]


The grouping of the New Dana Classification and of the is similar only, and so this classification is an overview only. Consistency is missing too on the group name endings (group, subgroup, series) between New Dana Classification and Category, class and supergroup name endings are used as layout tools in the list as well.

  • Abbreviations:
    • "*" - mineral not IMA Approved.
    • "Q" - doubtful/ questionable.
    • Rn - renaming.
    • Rd - redefinition.
    • "REE" - rare earth element (Sc, Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, Lu)
    • "PGE" - platinum group element (Ru, Rh, Pd, Os, Ir, Pt)
    • "s.p." - special procedure.
