Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Accurately identify raw minerals based on optical and physical properties.
Find an actual mineral and use this app to help identify what mineral you found.
Excellent for educational purposes. Use this in the class room to help students identify mineral by correctly matching the; color, streak, transparency, luster, cleavage, fracture, tenacity and hardness.
**Additional materials will be need to identify mineral.
Good for common minerals that would be found in a low level geology class. However it lacks more specific classifications of luster, cleavage, color, streak, and habit. With more options in these categories it would be easier to narrow down the mineral you are trying to identify. If you are looking to identify more uncommon minerals it would be best to buy a field guide from a book store.
This app is super useful when I got rock hunting! Although it is not for the experts.
Not worth the memory it occupies on your phone. What can I say, it is useless. Save your 3 bucks and get a Big Mac. Your better off to get a mineral reference guide.
