Augite is a mineral from the pyroxene group, a collection of minerals that form as magma is cooling. Exhibiting 2 perpendicular planes of cleavage and a white streak, augite is an ideal pyroxene to use for mineral identification and physical property exercises. Its formation mechanism makes it a handy visual aid during lessons on Bowen's reaction series as well.
