The history of the creation of Periodic table and of the Mendeleev’s discovery of Periodic Law is considered. The different approaches used by Mendeleev’s colleagues are discussed. The contribution of the Periodic system to the extension of the scientific ideas in geology and best of all in geochemistry and mineralogy is illustrated by the discovery of new chemical elements and by the isomorphic replacements in minerals. The details of uneasy history of Mendeleev’s nomination to the St. Petersburg Academy and for the Nobel Prize are given.
