Kornerupine

Chemical Composition :  (Mg,Fe2+)4Al6(Si,Al,B)5O21(OH) Magnesium Iron Aluminum Boro-silicate Hydroxide

Hardness : 6.0 – 7.0Moh

Specific Gravity (Density) : 3.28 – 3.35 (g/cm3)

Refractive Index : 1.660 – 1.684 Biaxial ( – ); may be pseudouniaxial ( – )

Kornerupine is a rare gemstone that is available in shades of green, bluish green, yellowish green and yellowish brown. The most desirable gems are the emerald green gems from Sri Lanka and Tanzania that are colored green by the presence of vanadium. Beautiful bluish green Kornerupine gems come from Madagascar and cats eye cabochons are available from Sri Lanka. Star Kornerupine has been found in Mogok, Myanmar (Burma) but is very rare. Kornerupine was originally found in Greenland as non-gemmy, radiating crystals but later found there as dark green gemmy crystals.

Kornerupine was named in 1884 by Danish mineralogist Johannes Theodor Lorenzen (1855-1884) in honor of Danish geologist, Andreas Nikolaus Kornerup (1857-1883). Kornerup died at age 26 from a lung disease he contracted while on an expedition in Greenland. Although Kornerup died at such a young age, he managed to establish himself as a well respected geologist in Greenland research. Coincidentally, Johannes Lorenzen also died at a young age, 29, while on an expedition in Greenland in 1884.

Current sources of gem quality crystals are Ivohibe District, Horombe Region, Fianarantsoa Province, Madagascar; Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin District, Mandalay Division, Burma (Myanmar); Matara District, Southern Province, Sri Lanka; Lelatema Mts, Simanjiro District, Manyara Region, Tanzania.

Kornerupine distribution: some localities for well-studied material: In Greenland, at Fiskenæsset. At Bjordam, near Kragerö, Norway. In Germany, from Waldheim, Saxony. From Mautia Hill, Tanzania. On the Bok se Puts Farm, Namaqualand, Cape Province, South Africa. Gem crystals from Itrongahy, near Betroka, and elsewhere in Madagascar. From gem gravels of the Matale, Ratnapura, and Embilipitiya districts, Sri Lanka. In the Harts and Strangways Ranges, Northern Territory, Australia. At Lac Ste-Marie, Quebec, Canada.

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul.

Authorities in our business will tell in no uncertain terms that Lorem Ipsum is that huge, huge no no to forswear forever. Not so fast, I'd say, there are some redeeming factors in favor of greeking text, as its use is merely the symptom of a worse problem to take into consideration.

Safe delivery, ensures the movement of goods in a short time.

You begin with a text, you sculpt information, you chisel away what's not needed, you come to the point, make things clear, add value, you're a content person, you like words. Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second. Anyway, you still use Lorem Ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web workers toolbox, as things happen, not always the way you like it, not always in the preferred order. Even if your less into design and more into content strategy you may find some redeeming value with, wait for it, dummy copy, no less.
