This issue of Mineralogical Almanac is devoted to the Saranovskoe chromite deposit at Middle Urals.
This deposit known for almost two hundred years is a unique mineralogical object, particularly as a source of great diversity of unusual Cr-bearing minerals. Among mineralogists and collectors Saranovskoe is famous for nice specimens of uvarovite, shuiskite, redledgeite, millerite, Cr-enriched varieties of titanite, amesite, diaspore, kassite, and pumpellyite-group and chlorite-group minerals. Crystals of grimaldiite and guyanaite were first found here.
At present 111 mineral species are known at the Saronovskoe deposit. Rich and unusual mineralization is a result of the interactions of chromitic rocks related to layered gabbro-ultramafic intrusion and hydrothermal solutions produced by dolerite dikes. The data on the mineralogy of the Saranovskoe deposit are summarized including results of author’s long-time studies, a review of all previously published data and description of interesting recent mineral finds.
