Vesuvianite

 

Vesuvianite, also known as Idocrase, is a calcium-magnesium-aluminum silicate with the composition Ca10(Mg, Fe)2Al4(SiO4)5(Si2O7)2(OH,F)4 which can be variable. It was first identified in 1795 among the ancient ejections of Vesuvius, Mte. Somma, Italy, hence its name. It can be green (var. Chromian), pink to purple (var. Mangano-vesuvianite), brown, yellow, or blue. Vesuvianite crystallizes in the tetragonal system, often prismatic or pyramidal crystals. It is mainly found in skarn deposits and limestones that have been subjected to contact metamorphism. It also occurs as compact masses and is often associated with Grossularite, Diopside, Clinochlore, Phlogopite and Wollastonite. Read more...
