Olivine Group Minerals

Olivine group minerals are common constituents of igneous rocks such as basalts, and are common in meteorites as well. They are highly vulnerable to alteration when they come into contact with water, often breaking down to form chlorite or serpentine group minerals.

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.
