The Mineralogy Database was last updated on 9/5/2012 and it contains 4,714 individual mineral species descriptions with links and a comprehensive image library. Visit the "What's New" section for details. Each mineral has a page linked to tables devoted to crystallography, crystal structures, X-Ray powder diffraction, chemical composition, physical and optical properties, Dana's New classification, Strunz classification, mineral specimen images, and alphabetical listings of mineral species. There also are extensive links to other external sources of mineral data and information.

National Geographic: Minerals, Gems Information More than 4,000 naturally occurring minerals—inorganic solids that have a characteristic chemical composition and specific crystal structure—have been found on Earth. They are formed of simple molecules or individual elements arranged in repeating chains, sheets, or three-dimensional arrays. Minerals are typically formed when molten rock, or magma, cools, or by separating out of mineral-rich water, such as that in underground caverns. In general, mineral particles are small, having formed within confined areas such as lava flows or between grains of sediments. Large crystals found in geodes and other rocks are relatively rare. Rocks themselves are made of clusters or mixtures of minerals, and minerals and rocks affect landform development and form natural resources such as gold, tin, iron, marble, and granite.

Judith Star-Medicine - Crystal Cave The First Chakra is ruled by both Pluto and Saturn. It is where we connect to Earth Mother and, through her, the Earth Plane. It has to do with survival, groundedness, connection to the body. Like the foundation of a house, for all of the other chakras to function properly, the Root Chakra must be strong and healthy. That Crystal Sites Guide: Metaphysical Properties and Crystal Meanings Azeztulite is among the highest vibrations in the Mineral Kingdom. It has been said that it stimulates the three 'ascension points', at the base of the spine, the middle of the abdomen, and the center of the brain. These points are believed to be important for people choosing to consciously enter higher vibrational realms while in the physical body. Azeztulites are stones which have been engineered etherically to carry the energies and communications of a group soul called the' Azez'. According to their channelings, the Azez, who are here in non-physical form, station themselves underground in power spots such as Sedona's Cathedral Rock and California's Mt Shasta, bringing to Earth a positive energy that they call `the nameless light", which assists planets and people in transitioning to higher frequencies.

Minerals by Name Choose a letter of the alphabet from the above list, and the index list on the left will change to the list of minerals that begin with that letter. You may adjust the width and height of this window by using the border to the left or top. The mineral name itself is a link to the description of that mineral species, while the number to the left is the approximate count of the number of specimens currently available for sale of that species, and is also a direct link to the list of specimens. The count may be zero, but if the link is active then there are specimens available to view, just not currently for sale.

The languages shown below are listed according to the complexity of the way of counting numbers in my opinion. I translate words included in number words to English, and I use '+' and '×' for implicit additions and multiplications.

Chinese Medicine - Crystal Therapy Chinese medicine is a comprehensive and independent system practice and theories, developed for more than 4000 years ago and based on ancient texts, critical acumen of therapists and clinical trials, acknowledged by respected health theorists and practitioners. It is the combination of philosophy, logic, sensitivity and tradition of a vast culture, unusual to the western eye. The theories of the East for the body, for pathology and for health can be distinct, while still delivering food results, as it has been demonstrated. EMFs, Stones, Crystals and Healing The question that begs to be answered here is…. Is there a certain stone or crystal that can protect you from EMFs? Stone therapy, or lithotherapy, was developed into a branch of homeopathy in France in 1965. But the French did not invent healing with stones. Early civilizations used stones for healing in lots of ways; in ceremonies or rituals, in powders and elixirs, by wearing them or carrying them on the body.

The needle-like rutile derives its name from the Latin word "rutilus" or "red," which is used to reference the deep red color that is found in many specimens. Rutile Composition Rutile is a crystalized mineral that is composed of titanium dioxide which crystallizes in the tetragonal crystal system, usually forming into a prismatic or twinned configuration.
