Named in the early 1800’s after Johan Nepomuk von Fuchs, Fuchsite is pronounced, “Fook-site”. This type of muscovite mica gets its seafoam to dark green color from trivalent chromium. It is usually found in micacious aggregates, with individual plates barely visible. Found in many places around the world, Fuchsite is very slightly radioactive due to its potassium content, but it is not harmful to humans & is used in many makeups to add “shimmer”
