Katamorphic processes give the important values to chromite deposits.
The ore from which all chromium compounds are made is chromite, or chrome iron ore (FeCr2O4).
It is not of a uniform quality, being largely a spotted ore; that is chromite mixed with serpentine ganue.
It forms a series of salts very similar to the spinels; chromite is the ferrous salt of this acid, having the formula Fe(CrO2)2.
