Halides are minerals composed of metals combined with halogen elements: chlorine, fluorine, bromine and iodine. This class includes about 130 minerals, where fluorides are the most common minerals; there are few chlorides, although sodium chloride (halite)—that is, cooking salt (Nacl) — is widely exploited; bromides and iodides are extremely rare. Halides are generally fragile and of low density. This class represents 5-6% of mineral species. The most representative minerals are: Atacamite, Boléite, Creedite, Cumengéite, Fluorine, Fluorite and Halite.
