Example Code:

The following code can be copied and pasted into your website for a simple link. Feel free to alter the description text, but make sure you keep the link the same.

Each mineral page has details of the URL you need to use to link. For example, if you have a page about Fluorite and want to link to the page on Fluorite, you should use the following code:

<a href="">View Fluorite information at</a>
