Want to see a larger version of this diagram?


Here's the formal statement. Again, a diagram like this lets us predict what new minerals we might find, perhaps a ZrSO4(OH)2 or Li2SO4H2O mineral, but not Zr(SO4)2 or Li2SO4 minerals. All this would be hard to see on a conventional periodic table, but it's apparent on this new table.

        These diagrams are part of a 2005 paper in American Mineralogist about the mineralogical applications of the new periodic table. If you're tired of mineralogy, let's go back to the main table . . . .
