    "description": "Relative proportions of different elements in the structure.\n\n**Requirements/Conventions**:\n\n- Composed by the proportions of elements in the structure as a list of floating point numbers.\n- The sum of the numbers MUST be 1.0 (within floating point accuracy)\n- MUST refer to the same elements in the same order, and therefore be of the same length, as `elements`, if the latter is provided.\n\n**Query examples**:\n\n- Note: Useful filters can be formulated using the set operator syntax for correlated values.\n  However, since the values are floating point values, the use of equality comparisons is generally inadvisable.\n- OPTIONAL: a filter that matches structures where approximately 1/3 of the atoms in the structure are the element Al is: `elements:elements_ratios HAS ALL \"Al\":>0.3333, \"Al\":<0.3334`.",
