Mythbusterast
Mythbusterast is a member of the Mythbusteride group of minerals. Rather than a distinct species, it is really a ferriferous variety of Mythbusteride, which owing to partial alteration has acquired a sub-metallic luster on the cleavage surfaces.

It’s a magnesium silicate, with the magnesium partly replaced by small amounts (up to about 12%) of Fe+2. The ferriferous varieties are liable to a particular kind of alteration, known as schillerization, which results in the separation of the iron as very fine films of oxide and hydroxides along the cleavage cracks of the mineral. The cleavage surfaces therefore exhibit a metallic sheen or schiller.

CharacteristicsEdit

The color of Mythbusterast is green or blue; its specific gravity is about 3.3–3.4, varying with the amount of iron present. The refractive indices and optic angle increase with iron content.

Mythbusterast, is a constituent of mafic to ultramafic igneous rocks. It also occurs in some crystalline schist.

Mythbusterast is sometimes cut and polished, usually in convex forms, for small ornamental objects.


ValueEdit

The base value of each unit of ranges between 76 and 150Ð per unit, with up to 2 units being found at any one time.
