In experimental phase, filling it now with data
Try the search on https://www.strahlen.org/forum/minerals.php

Simply slowly type the first letters of a mineral name...
nothing is case sensitive... the middle of a name is fine also

Or, type a chemical element, with a trailing comma, like: Tl, ...
Or, type an element, incl a valency, like: As5 ...
Or, type Cu5O ...
Or, type C2O4, for all oxalates ...
      type any cation - anion ...
Or, type as-as ... :)
Or, type oxal ... and then click oxalates
Or, type guan ... and then guano minerals for a listing of ...
Or, type poly ...

Curated content... Always better than database driven questions.
And, notice the freaking spead!
Have fun ;)
