The dark brownish-green color or pistachio-green color of epidote is characteristic of the mineral and gives the mineral its’ alternative name – pistacite. Closely related to zoisite which is orthorhombic, epidote is a calcium aluminum silicate with some iron, Ca2(Fe,Al) 3(SiO4)3(OH). The mineral crystallizes in the monoclinic system with vertically striated crystals that seldom display distinct terminations.
