Project descriptionI would like to have a database wiki about minerals, where all the properties of the mineral and everything else is listed.

The Earth is huge, and there are lots of minerals. There are thousands of them. And I want to write about every single property of each mineral in the article. Because everything is important.

It'll be in the wiki:

  • Minerals
  • Rocks
  • Chemical elements (maybe)

I know, I'm just a simple user, but I really love minerals.

More informationEdit

Are there minerals in Asia? Perhaps in Africa? Or in Europe? Of course there are! Illustrated with pictures. Certainly, English will be the main language, but these articles will be translated into many languages.


  •   Question: Is the kind of information you're wanting to categorise best placed on wikidata? For such a vast amount of information, I feel you'd want a database format for it. Supertrinko (talk) 01:53, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
    @Supertrinko I don't know anything about Wikidata. But the Wikispecies is also a database, I think, isn't it? My wiki will have images and interesting facts about minerals. Lois131 (talk) 12:22, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
