The Crystal Structure Database has been compiled by Bob Downs and Paul Heese of the University of Arizona. It includes every structure published in both the American Mineralogist, The Canadian Mineralogist, the European Journal of Mineralogy and is beginning to include structures from Physics and Chemistry of Minerals. The database is maintained under the care of the Mineralogical Society of America and the Mineralogical Association of Canada, and financed by the National Science Foundation. The data is retrieved via a compound query using pop-up windows with the fields "Mineral Name", "Author", "Title", "Year", or "Volume".

A complete description of the American Mineralogist crystal structure database and use with interactive software is available (pdf, 156 K)
