Chlorite inclusions are very common in alpine-type environments, and generally occur in fissures and pockets inside igneous and metamorphic rocks, and in sedimentary rocks that are rich in clay minerals. "Chlorite" is actually the name for a group of phyllo-silicates (sheet-silicates), minerals of mica-like appearance, the most common of which is clinochlore. The name refers to the commonly green color, although chlorite minerals do not have to be green, it depends where it comes from.

Chlorite minerals form at low to moderate temperatures, often as a product of low- to medium-grade regional metamorphosis. Often quartz from alpine-type clefts has a chlorite "icing" on the crystal surface, giving them a rough and dull look, because the crystals started to grow at high temperatures, and when their growth slowed down at lower temperatures, chlorite formed in the pocket and settled on the crystal faces. Pockets in the central Alps are often completely filled with chlorite, which can be both a blessing or a curse for a Strahler looking for splendid crystals. The pocket clay protects the crystals from damage, but it may also cause a dull surface.
