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.
