The minerals with complex anion groups such as the silicates, sulfates, carbonates and phosphates are classed separately.

Nickel–Strunz Classification -04- Oxides[edit]

IMA-CNMNC proposes a new hierarchical scheme (Mills et al., 2009). This list uses it to modify the Classification of Nickel–Strunz (mindat.org, 10 ed, pending publication).

Class: oxides[edit]
