Science & Origin of Iridescent Goethite

Iridescent Goethite also known as Turgite and Hydrohematite, is a rare variety of Goethite and Hematite that crystallizes in the form of masses, botryoidal, and stalactite. It was originally discovered in the Turjinstii Mine in Russia by R. Hermann in 1844-1845 and was named Turgite after the mine in which it was found. The colorful rainbow within Iridescent Goethite comes from the mixture of Hematite & Goethite on the surface, creating a thin layer that interferes with light. This mineral can only be found in a few deposits around the world such as in Russia, Spain, Germany, China, and the U.S.A.
