What Is Indigo Gabbro?
Indigo Gabbro is a part of the Gabbro family of minerals which are forms of dark, grained igneous rock.
Gabbro is a combination of many minerals, but mainly Quartz (due to its chemical composition involving silicon dioxide) and Feldspar.
Indigo Gabbro in particular is a silicate which is often rich in other trace minerals, including iron and magnesium.
Confusingly, this stone is not actually a form of Merlinite, even though it is often referred to by its trade name Mystic Merlinite.
How Does Indigo Gabbro Form?
A large amount of the Earth's oceanic crust consists of Gabbro formed at mid-ocean ridges.
When hot, molten magma from volcanoes was trapped beneath the Earth's crust, it quickly cooled into solid formations.
These solid creations became Gabbro crystals.
What Does Gabbro Look Like?
Due to the prevalence of crystalline formations under the Earth's crust, Gabbro has a diverse range of appearances.
Indigo Gabbro displays a gorgeous mix of speckled black, grey, and purple colours ranging in intensity of hue.
Another popular form of Gabbro is Blizzard Stone, which is often mistaken for Indigo Gabbro due to its similarly mottled appearance.
Where Do You Find Indigo Gabbro?
Indigo Gabbro is mainly mined in Madagascar, although it can also be found in some regions of Alaska.
