Detailed Mineral List:

Anorthite
Formula: Ca(Al2Si2O8)
Reference: Wang et al. (2017), The Origin of a new Pargasite-Schist Hosted Ruby Deposit from Paranesti, Northern Greece. The Canadian Mineralogist, Vol. 55, pp. 535-560.
Autunite
Formula: Ca(UO2)2(PO4)2 · 11H2O
Reference: Pergamalis, F., Karageorgiou, E.D., Koukoulis, A., Katsikis, J. (2010): Mineralogical-Geochemical study of uranium bearing granite phases in Paranesti area, N. Greece. In: Scientific Annals, School of Geology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Proceedings of the XIX CBGA Congress, Thessaloniki, Greece, Special volume 99, pp. 307-316.
'Chlorite Group'
Reference: Wang et al. (2017), The Origin of a new Pargasite-Schist Hosted Ruby Deposit from Paranesti, Northern Greece. The Canadian Mineralogist, Vol. 55, pp. 535-560.; Voudouris, P., Mavrogonatos, C., Graham, I., Giuliani, G., Tarantola, A., Melfos, V., ... & Magganas, A. (2019) Gemstones of Greece: Geology and Crystallizing Environments. Minerals, 9(8), 461.
'Chrome-Spinel (of Dana)'
Reference: Voudouris, P., Mavrogonatos, C., Graham, I., Giuliani, G., Tarantola, A., Melfos, V., ... & Magganas, A. (2019) Gemstones of Greece: Geology and Crystallizing Environments. Minerals, 9(8), 461.
Clinochlore
Formula: Mg5Al(AlSi3O10)(OH)8
Reference: Wang et al. (2017), The Origin of a new Pargasite-Schist Hosted Ruby Deposit from Paranesti, Northern Greece. The Canadian Mineralogist, Vol. 55, pp. 535-560.
Clinochlore var: Pennine
Formula: Mg5Al(AlSi3O10)(OH)8
Description: The Wang et al (2017) paper used a diagram adapted from Hey 1954 which include "penninite" (aka. Pennine) based on Si (p.f.u.), Fe(total) and Fe(total)/(Fe+Mg). Pennine has since then (1954) been discredited as a mineral specie by the IMA, therefore it should be called "Clinochlore". However, calling it "Penninite"/"Pennine" based on this diagram gives additional information as to the Si (p.f.u.) content and is therefore relevant.
