The epidote got its name from the Greek word épídosis - the addition, according to the stretching of the crystal, was named in 1801 by R.J. Haüy. It is an extended rock-forming mineral. It occurs on veins of the alpine type, in contact limestones or metamorphic rocks. It creates prismatic elongated crystals, tables, but also fibrous, fine-grained or solid aggregates. It is yellow-green, green to green-black.
