    As cited in previous comments, many specific errors...here's another...use of sphalerite "jewelry" !...how about zinc production and galvanizing. App to be trusted only in a very limited way.

    Useful only as a narrow the field tool. Do not take results as gospel. Also, let the different terms for non-metallic lustres enter your life! Vitreous, silky, adamantine are far more useful!

    Only 29 minerals. And as stated by previous comments. ... some properties are off or not completely correct.
