Chlorite Mineral Group

Chlorite group minerals occur mainly in low temperature metamorphic rocks on Earth. However, chlorites may also form by the breakdown of basalts in the presence of water. This makes them likely candidates to be found on planetary surfaces where liquid water and basalts might have interacted (or be interacting).

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.
