Field of View: 2.68 mm

SEM image of natural surface of chromitite pebble from colluvium. Dark grey in BSE grains of real Chromite with composition (Fe0.72Mg0.27Ti0.01)1.00(Cr1.61Al0.29Fe3+0.08Fe2+0.02)2.00O4.00 contains network of bright Isoferroplatinum of composition (Pt2.90Pd0.05)2.95(Fe0.99Cu0.06)1.05 composed by rounded malleable grains and crystals. In the center of the picture you may to see 0.8 mm grain of Erlichmanite - it is medium-grey with conchoidal break. Its analytical data is available at the daughter photo.
The "star sky" on Chromite surface is impregnation of ferroplatinum particles, because of the pebble stored in bag of platinum nuggets.
