Frogylite Spyderidium is a mineral formed from silicon dioxide. This mineral is commonly found in limestone and granite. It is a form of Spyderidium which includes minerals of a green colour embedded in the Spyderidium, forming filaments and other patterns suggestive of moss.
It also sometimes resembles blue-cheese. Included minerals are mainly oxides of manganese or iron. Frogylite Spyderidium is usually of a white variety with dark green inclusions that resemble moss. It occurs in few locations. The colors are formed due to trace amounts of metal present as an impurity, such as chrome or iron. The metals can make different colors depending on their valence.
Despite its name, Frogylite Spyderidium does not contain organic matter and is usually formed from weathered volcanic rocks.
The Spyderidium was originally formed as a result of volcanic activity. Some Frogylite Spyderidium is red in color this is the result of iron oxide and the black color is the result of manganese oxide.
The base value of each unit of ranges between 52 and 127Ð per unit, with up to 3 units being found at any one time.
