Mineralogists have special terms to describe luster. One simple way to classify luster is based on whether the mineral is metallic or non-metallic. Minerals that are opaque and shiny, such as pyrite, have a metallic luster. Minerals such as quartz have a non-metallic luster. Different types of non-metallic luster are described in Table below.

For example, the minerals pyrite and gold are always metallic yellow in color (although they differ in other characteristics such as hardness). Some minerals, for example quartz (see examples pictured below), come in every color of the rainbow and thus, color is not useful for identification of those minerals.

Standard names for luster include metallic, glassy, pearly, silky, greasy, and dull. It is often useful to first determine if a mineral has a metallic luster. A metallic luster means shiny like polished metal. For example cleaned polished pieces of chrome, steel, titanium, copper, and brass all exhibit metallic luster as do many other minerals.

Lab 9 - Mineral Identification

A mineral’s streak is the color of its powder when the mineral is rubbed on a square of porcelain called a streak plate. Streak is one of the best physical properties for the recognition of metallic minerals because metallic minerals all have a very dark-colored streak that is nearly always consistent for a given metallic mineral.
