Main index --- Minerals list

Minerals in this website - by colour

There is an A-Z list of minerals in this website here.

It is hard to separate the minerals into colour. One mineral may show a range of colours, from yellow through orange to almost red, for example. Also, people can disagree which colour a particular shade is. Metals are also difficult. What colour would you call copper? (No - copper is not a permitted answer!) So these allocations are sometimes arbitrary, based on my specimens, my sense of colour and my opinion.
