Uralite, named for the Urals Region of Russia, is the name given to pseudomorphs of the Amphibole Group and this well crystallized/pseudomorphed example is from Calumet mine in the Turret District of Chaffee County, Colorado, USA.  Blocky tabular Actinolite pseudomorphs after Diopside, form whitish sage green crystals covering the surface of a granular pale sage green matrix.  Low magnification reveals several 1 mm clusters of a bright apple green Diopside dotted over the pseudomorphs.
