“The Meteorite Minerals Catalog” is the first edition in Russia prepared in the 21st century. It includes all the minerals found in meteorites, approved by the Committee on New Minerals and MMA Mineral Names approved before January 1, 2017, and mineral phases. The Russian and English names, chemical compositions, and meteorites or meteorite groups characterized by the considered minerals are given for all minerals and mineral phases. Notably, the first descriptions of all minerals and phases and references to publications are also given in the Catalog. Minerals whose origin is associated with specific processes are also presented. These include pre-solar meteorite minerals, refractory and ultra-refractory solar condensates, impact minerals of meteorites and products of the terrestrial weathering of meteorites.
