Hiddenite is a yellow-green or emerald green variety of Spodumene, a lithium aluminium silicate mineral with a hardness of 6 to 7. Its crystal system is monoclinic. Hiddenite derives its name from W.E. Hidden, who discovered the stone in 1879 in North Carolina, USA. It forms in prismatic crystals and is found in pegmatite veins. It is a difficult stone to cut into gems, because its perfect cleavage is sensitive to pressure, which can cause the stone to break while being worked. The most important deposits of Hiddenite are in Brazil, Madagascar, Burma and the USA.
