Chloritoid mineral - You can buy these samples

Chloritoid is a mineral named for its resemblance to minerals of the chlorite group. It can be distinguished from similar minerals by higher hardness, brittleness and optical parameters. It was first discovered in the Urals.

You can see chloritoid stone for sale and buy it in the Minerals of Russia online store.
