Amphibole Mineral Group

Amphibole group minerals are stable over a wide range of pressures and temperatures. On Earth, they occur in both igneous and metamorphic rocks. They may be present on other planetary surfaces where water (or hydrogen) is present when they are crystallizing. Amphiboles have been reported in martian meteorites.

The photo to the left is representative of this mineral group; however, it is not the same sample on which spectra listed below were measured.
