What is Lithos?
Lithos is a tool too keep track of your mineral collection. It is
available for Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT/2000. The current version
The current version of Lithos offers the following features:
integrated Database with all IMA acknowleged mineral species up
to december 2000. The information available for each species include name,
crystal system, crystal class, hardness, density, color, streak color,
cleavage, fracture and crystal grid parameters.
links from over 1000 trade names, old or obsolete names, and mineral
groups to the real acknowleged species.
quick identification of mineral species after physical properties with
powerfull search capabilities.
over 1000 crystal drawings of approx. 600 species.
database for your own collection. Keep track of the specimen in your collection
and where they come from.
search facillities for your own collection allow: extracting all localities
that you have azurite from, listing all specimen from a locality or region,
listing all specimen in a storage space. All of this of course only works
after you have catalogued your collection using Lithos, but the effort
pays off the first time you're asked for a locality where you can find
pyromorphite (or something else for that matter, but I happen to like
printing out on numerous label formats.
Wherever you need to enter a mineral name (even those nasty german ones
:-) ) inside Lithos there is a assistent that helps to prevent the casual
spelling error that happens too easily with names like Tuperssuatsiait (anyone
knowing how this is pronounced?).
