Mineralienatlas (name for mineral atlas) is the platform for people interested in mineralogy, geology, palaeontology and mining since 2001. We operate the largest database for minerals, fossils, rocks and their localities. Mineralienatlas is not limited to a section. We bring together information and inform comprehensive.

To complete our information constantly, we need your support. With us, everyone can and should participate. Currently Mineralienatlas is used and expanded by 7277 members. Every month hundreds of thousands of visitors use our website as an information source.
 
At http://m.mineralienatlas.de we provide our optimized website for mobile devices. If your mobile device supports GPS (position data), you can also get information of your surroundings.... more

The first chemical analysis undertook M. H. Klaproth in 1784; the name Pyromorphit, from the Greek "pyro" for fire and "Morpho" for form, was of J.F.L. Hausmann 1813 awarded.

De­posits are one of the most im­por­tant top­ics in ge­ol­o­gy. Peter Sero­ka has ad­dressed the is­sue in sev­er­al years of work and has writ­ten an up-to-date ge­o­log­i­cal sum­mary. He ded­i­cat­ed his work to the 15 th an­niver­sary of Min­er­alie­nat­las. The work gives de­tailed in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the ori­gin of d ... moreDeposits are one of the most important topics in geology. Peter Seroka has addressed the issue in several years of work and has written an up-to-date geological summary. He dedicated his work to the 15 th anniversary of Mineralienatlas. The work gives detailed information regarding the origin of deposits, the different types of deposits and their classification. Examples of economically important deposits complete the chapters. Provided that this comprehensive work would be printed it would be a volume of over 400 pages; here it is provided in its entirety, online. Thanks to Peter Seroka. (written in german language).

The Alps are the high­est and most ex­ten­sive moun­tain range sys­tem that lies en­tire­ly in Eu­rope, stretch­ing ap­prox­i­mate­ly 1,200 km across eight Alpine coun­tries from Aus­tria and Slove­nia in the east, Switz­er­land, Liecht­en­stein, Ger­many, and France to the west, and Ita­ly and Mo­na­co to the south. The ... moreThe Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe, stretching approximately 1,200 km across eight Alpine countries from Austria and Slovenia in the east, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, and France to the west, and Italy and Monaco to the south. The Caucasus Mountains are higher, and the Urals longer, but both lie partly in Asia. The Alps were formed over tens of millions of years as the African and Eurasian tectonic plates collided. Extreme shortening caused by the event resulted in marine sedimentary rocks rising by thrusting and folding into high mountain peaks such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Mont Blanc spans the French–Italian border, and at 4,810 m is the highest mountain in the Alps. The Alpine region area contains about a hundred peaks higher than 4,000 m known as the "four-thousanders".
