Mineral Specimen #4349    Uralite, Epidote

Calumet Mine, Turret District, Chaffee Co., Colorado, USA

Uralite is not actually a valid mineral species name. Rather, it is used to describe green colored ambiguous Amphiboles. Uralite specimens from this location are pseudomorphs of Actinolite after either Diopside or Augite. In this specimen, the crystals are well formed and blocky. Originally coated with Calcite, the Uralite has been exposed by etching away the Calcite with HCl (some "melted" white Calcite is still attached). In the midst of gray/green colored Uralite crystals is a blocky green colored Epidote crystal which is terminated at one end. THe specimens stands without a stand The specimen is in very good condition alhtough the sides are just compassed of massive material.


7.8 x 6.5 x 4.5 cm
Epidote XL is 2.7 long and 1.1 cm in width
