The commoner minerals, those found at numerous localities, appear as colored nodes near the center of these diagrams, whereas a significantly greater number of rare minerals that occur at only one or two localities plot as colored nodes in clusters and “fans” of minerals arranged around the periphery of the by:

About the same time Berzelius proposed his purely Chemical System, in which minerals were arranged according to the basic or electropositive elements, with. Now as these minerals are numerous and important, it is obvious that Hauy's method cannot be considered as a system of mineralogy, but as embracing only a part of that system. To know the whole, we must have recourse to the method of Werner, whose descriptions apply equally to .
