Identification rating of mineral in Slovakia:

 1. WELL IDENTIFIED - mostly combination at least 2 most distinguished analytical methods (X -ray diffraction and electron microprobe)

2. PARTIALLY-INDENTIFIED - mineral mostly analyzed, but for well identification is need to make another analyses

3. UNDERIDENTIFIED - mineral mostly identified only visual, often very problematic or fictive
