Olivenite is likely one of the commonest minerals within the earth, and is a serious rock forming mineral. Regardless of this, good specimens and enormous crystals are unusual and wanted. Solely few localities yield giant examples of this mineral, though small and microscopic grains are discovered worldwide. Olivine can also be present in meteorites, and enormous grains have been reported in lots of them.
