Links to Other Resources

My policy for adding links: 

I receive on average about five requests each week to have a reciprocal link to another website.  If you want to link to Trinity Mineral Company that is your business. I am not adverse to providing a link from Trinity Mineral Company to another site obviously.  However, I will only add a link to another dealer's site if I have met and know the dealer personally. 

PLEASE do not ask me to give you a link unless we've formerly met and have done business together for some time.  A link is an endorsement of the person I am referring my customers to.  If I do not know you I can not possibly endorse you. 

Thank you,  John

Mineralogy Database - The A to Z List  - David Barthelemy maintains a comprehensive listing of every species with chemical and Strunz data and much more!  Easily one of the best resources for people interested in minerals whether they're a museum curator or beach comber. I use it all the time!!!

MinMax - Mineralogy Database - Don Zampano has done a remarkable job of putting together a very comprehensive listing of all mineral species and their pertinent info such as chemistry, type locality and other localities for their occurrences.  A very slick operation!

The following links take you to a metaphysical site in the Netherlands that has compiled comprehensive information on crystallography and morphology of crystals.  The sites cover the six basic crystal systems in great detail.  I find these site very useful for quick on line references. You have to excuse some of the spellings. (I have sidestepped the pages on metaphysical stuff since all I care about is the good technical information on crystallography .)

Isometric Crystal System
Tetragonal Crystal System
Hexagonal Crystal System
Orthorhombic Crystal System
Monoclinic Crystal System
Triclinic Crystal System
