Senft; (1810-1893) was a German mineralogist. He studied at the Universities of Jena and Göttingen. In 1835, he became professor of natural history at the Real-Gymnasium and the Forstschule in Eisenach. He was a member of the Leopoldin Academy and the Erfurt Academy. Senft wrote texts on mineralogy and crystallography. His Analytische Tabellen is probably his rarest work since the book was published on a poor quality paper and served as a laboratory manual. It consists of a series of tables giving information about the properties of minerals and rocks.
