The wonder and delight of internal landscapes, chlorite in quarts sheds light on the drama of creation.
Moss-like chlorite inclusions are very common in Alpine-type environments. They generally occur in fissures and pockets inside igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks that are rich in clay minerals.
Chlorite is the name for a group of phyllo-silicates, minerals of mica like appearances, the most common is clinochlore. The name refers to the common green color. Some crystals have phantoms of unknown mica minerals and carbonate mineral inclusions. Phantoms are laid down in layers.
