Mineral Identifier

By Ben Davis

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Mineral Identifier is a app used for identifying minerals using the optical properties of minerals, when studied in thin section using an optical microscope.

It is a great tool for any budding Geology student which can save a lot of time in identifying minerals and in looking up optical properties of specific minerals.

It works by asking a series of questions which can be easily answered when the mineral is studied in thin section. The app will then show you which minerals fit the given criteria or specifically identify the mineral if the criteria matches only one mineral.

The whole library is viewable by the user as well for simply looking at the specific properties of an individual mineral.

What's New in Version 1.0.2

Customer Reviews

Could've used more

You have the database, but it lacks location and pictures. Maybe add a map where people could mark off where they found them, etc.

Not for anyone who's not already got a degree

This is not very user-friendly. There are no exclamations of what anything is. Everything's assumed that you know what it means. And there are no photos in the library to help identify visually. Fix your app and make it so a 5 year old could LEARN using it instead of just for people who already have a associates in geology.

Needs Pictures

I love this app and I love to learn about minerals. I just wish it had pictures so I could identify the rocks I have.
