The following is a list of
notable mineralogists and other people who made notable contributions to mineralogy. Included are winners of major mineralogy awards such as the Dana Medal and the Roebling Medal. Mineralogy is a subject of geology specializing in the scientific study of chemistry, crystal structure, and physical (including optical) properties of minerals and mineralized artifacts.
Dana developed the modern system of mineral classification.
Evgraf Fedorov worked out the 230
of crystallographic symmetry.
René Just Haüy, "Father of modern crystallography".
Koksharov was noted for his measurements of minerals using a
