    Olivine is a rock-forming mineral which occurs in mafic (where the minerals are usually dark in colour and have a specific gravity greater than 3) and ultramafic (silica-poor) igneous rocks such as basalt, gabbro, troctolite and peridotite. Dunite, for example, is a rock composed exclusively of Olivine.

Langone, F. Micheletti, G. Piccarreta --Chapter al Morphology and Crystal Growth of Accessory Zircon from Igneous Rocks. Zircon (ZrSiO 4) is an important mineral found in the igneous rocks and sediments of the earth's crust [], and it transforms from the zircon (S.G. I4 1 /amd, Z = 4) to the reidite (scheelite I4 1 /a, Z = 4) form at ∼23 GPa.

This transformation was suggested to be brought about by shear deformations followed by small displacement of the atoms and rotation of the SiO 4 tetrahedra [18].

However, the word chrysolite has a long history in the gemstone world. The name itself means "gold stone," and over time it has been used to refer to different gemstones, including chrysoberyl, peridot/olivine and term Oriental chrysolite was used to refer to yellowish-green sapphire and Ceylon chrysolite was used to refer to olive-green tourmaline.

Gem-quality zircon megacrysts occur in placer deposits in the Central Highlands, Vietnam, and have euhedral to anhedral crystal shapes with dimensions of ~3 cm in length.
