Here is a specimen of sparkling, pearlescent foliated fuchsite crystals in a vivid, slightly bluish green color. Fuchsite, which is occasionally found in pegmatite mines, is actually a rare green variety of the common mineral muscovite. This fuchsite is unusually rich in chromium, which gives it the rich green color. The fuchsite is formed on and around crystals of quartz.
