List of minerals in the thermo.dat database : using Geochemist’s Workbench

I often use the “Explain” command to learn more about a mineral in the thermo.dat database. ┬áBut sometimes it would return an error message.

Rxn> Explain Anorthite

Anorthite: CaAl2Si2O8 feldspar
mole weight = 278.209 g/mol
molar volume = 100.790 cm3/mol, density = 2.760 g/cm3

Rxn> Explain Albite

Albite: NaAlSi3O8 feldspar
mole weight = 262.223 g/mol
molar volume = 100.250 cm3/mol, density = 2.616 g/cm3

Rxn> Explain Orthoclase
— Orthoclase is not a known species, mineral, or gas

You can use the simple “show” command to look for the list of minerals in the thermo.dat database. Example:

Rxn> show minerals

Enter match string, if desired:
Minerals in thermo dataset:

624 minerals in total. Keep the list handy or learn how to access your mineral.
