Caption: Clinochlore. Close-up of the cut and polished surface of a sample of the phyllosilicate mineral clinochlore (seraphinite). Clinochlore (magnesium iron aluminium silicate hydroxide) is one of the most common of the chlorite group of minerals. It forms when iron and magnesium silicate minerals undergo metamorphic or hydrothermal alterations. Its provenance is practically restricted to a limited area located in East Siberia, Russia. The polished surface here seen is 75 mm wide.
