Amphiboles, double chain inosilicate mineral identifiers

Note:
  • The classification of amphiboles on mindat.org and on mineralienatlas.de is not exactly the same.
  • The website (rruff.info/ima) takes only the development of the ideal chemical formula into account. 'The IMA List of Minerals' takes the 'Nomenclature of the Amphibole Supergroup' (2012) into account, as well (apfu redefinition).
