The database may be searched by mineral name, composition, or other parameters. The database was put together by Dr. Anatoly Chichagov and Dmitry A. Varlamov, both of the Russian Academy of Sciences and is supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research. A truly outstanding collection of data. Thank you, we have used it extensively. "
First Automatic Formed Cross-Link to Information Cards of minerals provide exchange of information between MINCRYST and one of the best Mineralogical Databases (David Barthelmy), USA.
Institute of Experimental Mineralogy (IEM), Chernogolovka, (Moscow region), Russia: IEM Databases and Datasets (supported by the Russian Foundation of Basic Research). Go to: WWW-MINCRYST- Mineral's listing. Containing data on more than 6000 cards (2400 unique mineral and synthetic phases) plus data.
