Edenite has been found primarily in metamorphic rocks, occurring in pods of other magnesium rich minerals within a marble formation or with garnet rich lherzolites from deep within the Earth's crust. Thus, finding edenite in the field can indicate high temperature regional metamorphism of the surrounding rocks.
Ecru: a greyish pale kind of yellow color-kind of beige but with no red in it if you can imagine that. Linen is somewhat of an ecru color.
Don't you just love how that word sounds?
Sorry....I couldn't resist!
P.S. I am at home in Hawaii with limited access to 'pooters'! I might not be able to leave comments very readily at your site, but I hope that doesn't stop you from leaving me comments! They are always appreciated!
