Analysis of the coexisting of the 114 IMA-approved lithium minerals by Network Analysis and particularly by clustering. Results show three main and three small clusters. This method illustrates not random connections, but an actual reason for to group together. Each of clusters has chemical features and indeed different sources of magma. Minerals of the first group, in the main case, belong to LCT pegmatites, the second and the third ones relate to alkaline rocks.
