Chrome-Spinel (of Dana)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
A poorly defined term usually used for a Cr-rich spinel or less commonly hercynite but also for chromite and magnesiochromite, and perhaps any Cr-bearing spinel-group mineral, e.g. Cr-bearing magnetite, ferritchromite etc.
