Description
Chlorite is the group name for about 10 related minerals. However, the term Chlorite can be used both to describe the group in general, or as a specific term to describe any green member of the Chlorite group whose exact identity is not practical to be determined. Although Chlorite is not recognized as an individual mineral species by the International Mineral Association, mineral collectors still refer to it by its traditional name Chlorite is very common, and is often an uninteresting green mineral coating the surface of more important minerals. However, there are some crystal forms and varieties that are attractive on their own right. Chlorite also forms as inclusions within other minerals, especially Quartz. - (LR.017)
