standard of mineralogy In Earth sciences: Crystallography and the classification of minerals and rocks American geologist James Dwight Dana’s System of Mineralogy, in its third edition, was reorganized around a chemical classification, which thereafter became standard for handbooks.

It wasn’t until when J.D. Dana published the 4th edition of the System of Mineralogy that he struck on the chemical classification system (elements, sulfides, oxides, silicates, and so on) that we accept universally today.
