Astrophyllite is a complex mineral, a potassium, sodium, iron, manganese, titanium silicate with a hardness of 3.5. It forms in bladed crystals which often occur in starbursts within its tan matrix rock. Its color is most often a coppery bronze but can also be golden yellow. Its crystal system is triclinic. It forms in cavities in igneous rocks, especially nepheline synenites. It can occur in association with acmite, feldspars, brown micas titanite and zircon. It has been found in Greenland, Norway and the USA, but most material on the market has come from the Kola Peninsula of Russia.
