DUNITE FORM OF OLIVINE<br />
Nesosilicate (Orthosilicate)(Mg&Fe)2SiO4; Orthorhombic-Rhombic bipyramidal crystal class. Embedded in grains & rarely found as free growing crystals. Solid granular masses of olivine are known as dunite. Dunite can be found in basalt bombs in Ariz. It is a good source of magnesium
