Why the name, Polarite?

In the dawn of time, it began with the birth of Graphene repository, which its’ name was picked from the name of a mineral.
Then, not so long after, another repository called Flourite emerged. It’s actually a typo of Fluorite, another name of a mineral.
Now, where mankind stands, we want to continue that convention, to pick a name from a list of mineral on Wikipedia.
