Product Description

Rock Type:  Dunite

Location:  Nunavut, Canada

Description:  The image is dominantly actinolite amphibole laths (elongated shapes) interstitial to intensely serpentinized (altered by the addition of water) olivine crystals (grey-white).  As retrogression or breakdown of actinolite also occurs, chrome and titanium rich magnetite (black) begin to grow along cleavage planes.   The rock was studied for its diamond potential.
