Complete mineral list

There is actually no such thing as a 'complete list of minerals'. The International Mineralogical Association is the body that recognises new minerals and new mineral names, however minerals discovered before 1959 did not go through the official naming procedure, although some minerals published previously have been either confirmed or discredited since that date. This list contains a mixture of mineral names that have been approved since 1959 and those mineral names believed to still refer to valid mineral species (these are called "grandfathered" species). Minerals are natural compounds formed through geological processes. ...
