Name:
Named by Arcangelo Scacchi in 1841 from the Greek περικλάω, to break around, in allusion to the cleavage.
Periclase Group.

Periclase is a rare magnesium oxide mineral. It is usually found as a component of metamorphosed dolomitic limestones. It can hydrate and alter to Brucite and other magnesium minerals by action of the humidity in normal atmospheric conditions.

Visit gemdat.org for gemological information about Periclase.
