Abstract - Summary 
(short description):
The author returns to a discussion of the concept of mineral species, paying attention to the existing formalism adopted species-specific characteristics and the level of mismatch of modern knowledge about the minerals, which leads to an undesirable rupture classification concepts with real mineralogical objects. Points to the need to consider the content of the concept of mineral species genetic component, reflecting the ability to change the chemical composition and structure of real minerals when the parameters of the mineral-generate and mineral-preservation medium have changed. We discuss the experience of creating natural genetic systematization minerals example alkali feldspar
