Anatholy Chichagov, Russian Academy of Sciences


This searchable database, maintained by the Russian Foundation of Basic Research, includes 4785 entries (2365 unique mineral names). Each mineral can be searched by name, specification, crystal chemical formula, or crystal structure characteristics. The crystal structure information includes mineral name, specification, crystal chemical formula, space group, unit cell parameters, coordinates, thermal factors and occupancy of atomic positions as well as literature references on crystal structure determination.
