*'''Quantity''' is the number of mineral deposits of that type to be found on the planet.
Ex. Wendell Wilson coll.
+
*'''Quality''' is the size of each mineral deposit.  The numbers given are for Dwarf star systems. Giant and Supergiant systems add +5 and +10, respectively, to the Quality of each mineral deposit in the system.
 +
*'''Avg Dwarf''' is the average number of units of the mineral one could expect to find on such a planet around a Dwarf star.
 +
*'''Avg Giant''' is the average number of units of the mineral one could expect to find on such a planet around a Giant star.
 +
*'''Avg Super''' is the average number of units of the mineral one could expect to find on such a planet around a Supergiant star.
  
 
+
Where the minerals table says "&times;2" or "&times;3", there will be multiple series of deposits. So for example a Carbide World will generate three Heavy sets of deposits.
The crystal measures 2.3 x 1.7 cm. No damage.

'''Minerals and Their Uses[[]]
 
Every segment of society uses minerals and mineral resources everyday. The roads we ride or drive on and the buildings we live learn and work in all contain minerals. Below is a selected list of commonly used metallic and nonmetallic minerals, ore minerals, mineral byproducts, aggregates, and rock types that are used to make products we use in our daily life.
 
Aggregates
 
Natural aggregates include sand, gravel, and crushed stone. Aggregates are composed of rock fragments that may be used in their natural state or after mechanical processing, such as crushing, washing, or sizing. Recycled aggregates consist mainly of crushed concrete and crushed asphalt pavement.
 
Aluminum
 
Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element in the Earth's crust. Bauxite ore is the main source of aluminum. Aluminum is used in automobiles and airplanes (36%), bottling and canning industries (25%), building and electrical (14%) and in other applications (25%).
 
 
 
Antimony
 
Antimony is a silvery-gray, brittle semi-metal. It rarely occurs in nature as a native element, but is found in a number of different minerals. Antimony is used principally for flame retardants as well as in ammunition and automotive batteries and as a decolorizing agent in glassmaking.
 
 
 
 
Asbestos
 
Asbestos is a class of minerals that can be readily separated into thin, strong fibers that are flexible, heat resistant, and chemically inert. Asbestos minerals are used in fireproof fabrics, yarn, cloth, and paper and paint filler. Asbestos is used to make friction products, asbestos cement pipes and sheets, coatings and compounds, packing and gaskets, roofing and flooring products, paints and caulking, and chemical filters. Fibers are dangerous when breathed, so users must protect against fibers becoming airborne. 
 
 
 
 
 
Basalt
 
Basalt is an extrusive igneous rock. Crushed basalt is used for railroad ballast, aggregate in highway construction, and is a major component of asphalt.
 
 
 
 
Barium
 
Barium is an element, derived primarily from the mineral barite, and used as a heavy additive in oil-well-drilling mud, paints, rubber, plastic and paper; production of barium chemicals; and glass manufacturing.
 
 
Beryllium
 
Beryllium, an element commonly associated with igneous rocks, has industrial and nuclear defense applications and is used in light, very strong alloys for the aircraft industry. Beryllium salts are used in x-ray tubes and as a deoxidizer in bronze metallurgy. The gemstones of beryl, a beryllium mineral, are emerald and aquamarine.
 
 
Bismuth
 
Bismuth is used in a number of very different applications. The majority is consumed in bismuth alloys, and in pharmaceuticals and chemicals. The remainder is used in ceramics, paints, catalysts, and a variety of minor applications. Bismuth metal is relatively inert and non-toxic. It has replaced toxic lead in many applications such as plumbing, bullets, birdshot, metal alloys, and soldering. Bismuth compounds are used in stomach-upset medicines (hence the trademarked name Pepto-Bismol), treatment of stomach ulcers, soothing creams, and cosmetics. 
 
 
 
Boron
 
Boron compounds are used for many different purposes in industry and the home. Boron  is used to make glass, ceramics, enamels, fiberglass, make water softeners, soaps and detergents. Other uses are in agricultural chemicals, pest controls, fire retardants, fireworks, medicine, and various minor applications. Boron nitride is one of the hardest known substances and is used for abrasives and cutting tools.
 
Bromine
 
Bromine, recovered commercially through the treatment of seawater brines, is used in leaded gasoline, fire extinguishers and retardants, well-completion fluids, and sanitary preparations. Bromine is the only liquid nonmetallic element.
 
Cadmium
 
Cadmium is used in plating and alloying, pigments, plastics, and batteries. Cadmium is obtained from the ore minerals Sphalerite (Zn,Cd)S and Greenockite (CdS)
 
 
 
Calcium
 
The primary use of calcium is not in its silvery-white metal form, but as calcium  carbonate. It used in adhesives and sealants, cosmetics, foods, paint, paper, pharmaceuticals, plastics, rubber, for the production of lime, and as crhused stone in construction. Immense quantities of calcium are found in sedimentary rock deposits of gypsum, limestone, and shale. Some common calcium-bearing minerals include apatite (calcium phosphate), calcite (calcium carbonate), dolomite (calcium magnesium carbonate), fluorite (calcium fluoride), and gypsum (calcium sulfate). Calcium metal is produced in Canada, China, France, Russia, and the United States. Total world output is thought to be less than 6,000 metric tons per year. United States consumption of calcium metal is small. On a worldwide basis, more than 100 million metric tons per year of apatite and gypsum are mined, and calcite and dolomite are produced in billions of metric tons per year.
 
Cement
 
Cement is used for building materials, stucco, and mortar. Cement is :a mixture of powdered lime, clay, and other minerals that crystallize to form a hard solid when water is added (hydraulic cement) or as a binding material in concrete" (Kesler, 1994). An excellent overview of cement, its chemistry, and properties can be found in MacLaren and White (2003).
 
 
 
Chromium 
 
Chromium is used in the production of stainless and heat-resistant steel, full-alloy steel, super alloys and other alloys. Chromium is obtained from the ore mineral Chromite (Mg,Fe)(Cr,Al,Fe)2O4

There are many different clay minerals that are used for industrial applications. Clays are used in the manufacturing of paper, refractories, rubber, ball clay, dinnerware and pottery, floor and wall tile, sanitary wear, fire clay, firebricks, foundry sands, drilling mud, iron-ore pelletizing, absorbent and filtering materials, construction materials, and cosmetics.
 
 
 
Cobalt
 
Half of the consumption of cobalt is used in corrosion- and abrasion-resistant alloys with steel, nickel, and other metals for the production of industrial engines. Other uses of  cobalt metal include magnets and cutting tools. Cobalt salts are used to produce a blue color in paint pigments, porcelain, glass, and pottery.

Mineral amounts

The number and size of the mineral deposits on a planet is determined from the specified deposit type and the size of the system's star as follows:

Description Quantity Quality Avg Dwarf Avg Giant Avg Super
Trace 0-1 1-10 5.5 8 15.5
Light 0-4 1-10 11 21 31
Medium 0-4 6-15 21 31 41
Heavy 0-4 11-20 31 41 51
Huge 0-8 11-20 62 82 102
  • Quantity is the number of mineral deposits of that type to be found on the planet.
  • Quality is the size of each mineral deposit. The numbers given are for Dwarf star systems. Giant and Supergiant systems add +5 and +10, respectively, to the Quality of each mineral deposit in the system.
  • Avg Dwarf is the average number of units of the mineral one could expect to find on such a planet around a Dwarf star.
  • Avg Giant is the average number of units of the mineral one could expect to find on such a planet around a Giant star.
  • Avg Super is the average number of units of the mineral one could expect to find on such a planet around a Supergiant star.

Where the minerals table says "×2" or "×3", there will be multiple series of deposits. So for example a Carbide World will generate three Heavy sets of deposits.

The size of the graphic used for the deposit is determined as follows:

Quality Graphic Size
0-15 Small
16-23 Medium
23-30 Large

Note that deposits of 23 units can appear as either Medium or Large graphics (about a 50-50 chance of either)
