There is no a universal rule widely accepted to describe the size of minerals in the collectors jargon, only conventions used by the most of collectors and dealers, with some variations each other.

In this site, we try to adhere as much as possible to this conventions, also trying to use our own set, to describe the size of minerals listed here.

This are the descriptive sizes names used in this site, hopping that all our samples showed fit into one of this definitions, and, if at a moment we need to modify this descriptions the text will be updated with the changes.
