The term "chlorite" refers to a group of clay minerals, the most common of which is clinochlore.  Many associate chlorite with the color green but it has been known to occur in a variety of hues including gray, black, red, purple, white or even colorless.

 

   Chlorite-included crystals are often found in Alpine-type environments such as the Himalayas. Alpine-type clefts or fissures are rare geological occurrences in which chlorite is often one of the more abundant minerals found.  We have discovered chlorite inclusions in quartz, as coating or frosting on its surface and also as an associated mineral, attached to the exterior or matrix of the crystal.
