Dana Classification

"The Dana System of Mineralogy was first published in 1837 by James Dwight Dana, a leading geologist of his time; it is in its eighth edition (1997 ed.). The Dana classification, assigns a four-part number to a mineral species. First is its class, based on important compositional groups; next, the type gives the ratio of cations to anions in the mineral; finally, the last two numbers group minerals by structural similarity with a given type or class."
