Golden Mica is a variety of Mica that crystallizes in the form of scales, sheets, and flakes (usually on a matrix). The color comes from oxidized Iron and can range in shades from metallic gold to mustard yellow. This mineral is not to be confused with Muscovite, which is also in the Mica family. Although they are both “sheet silicate” minerals, Muscovite contains aluminum and potassium, while Golden Mica has heavy traces of Iron. The majority of commercial Golden Mica deposits can be found spread throughout Brazil, especially the state of Minas Gerais.
