Minerals: "for the purpose of being exchanged to others" Edit

The quoted parenthetical doesn't explain what the purpose of this category is. Are these items only good for exchange? No, since they are ingredients for some item you probably want for yourself. I can easily see the contents of this category fitting in elsewheres (smelting products, for example!), and not in this redundant space. Sig-JIM ° talk ˚ contribs. 03:11, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

The article "mineral" suggests that the term means "any stone, un-smelted ore, or uncut gem". I don't really see why someone has made this distinction, and yet I'm not the type to delete it out of hand. It may be that this category may eventually contain the component categories named in the definition. In the meantime, I'm going to give this cat a "soft delete" by making it unlinked. Someone that understands the concept more can flesh it out. Sig-JIM ° talk ˚ contribs. 18:45, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
