Colour:pink
Name:Named after "Thule", the ancient name of Scandinavia (and mythical island).
A variety of Zoisite

A pink variety of zoisite, frequently manganian, i.e. containing trivalent Mn (not manganoan, which refers to divalent Mn). Originally described from Kleppan, Sauland, Hjartdal, Telemark, Norway.

"Thulite" from granite pegmatite is frequently clinothulite variety of clinozoisite and not true zoisite.

Compare also clinothulite.
