  • CHLORITE | Chlorite is a metamorphic mineral that has undergone light alteration. During metasomatism, phyllosilicate minerals may become hydrated and form chlorite. The greener color and near-soapy feel of chlorite distinguishes it from other phyllosilicates at a glance, and the presence of water distinguishes it chemically
  • GREAT FOR GEOLOGY CLASSROOMS | This sample is ideal for lessons on metamorphism, mineral alteration, as well as general identification and classification exercises
  • GEOLOGIST SELECTED | Each specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring each sample exhibits defining features

Raw Chlorite Specimen
Single Sample, 1"

Chlorite is a metamorphic mineral that has undergone light alteration. During metasomatism, phyllosilicate minerals may become hydrated and form chlorite. The greener color and near-soapy feel of chlorite distinguishes it from other phyllosilicates at a glance, and the presence of water distinguishes it chemically. This sample is ideal for lessons on metamorphism, mineral alteration, as well as general identification and classification exercises.
While each specimen will vary slightly in shape, size and color, it will measure approximately 1" in length. Each is individually packaged, labeled & barcoded for easy identification and storage.

Selected & Processed by a Geologist.
Each and every specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring that each sample exhibits defining features. Rocks and minerals are sourced from a variety of locations around the world and are processed by hand in Victor, NY.
