Additional Details:
Green sand consists mainly of the mineral olivine. It is found in areas which have an abundance of a type of lava rock called Olivine basalt. This yellow green sand accumulates as a result of fragmentation and weathering of the lava by the forces of nature. Olivine is often called "Hawaiian Gold", which is reminiscent of "Fool's Gold" (iron Pyrites) found in the USA. The most noted green sand beach is located at South Point on the Island of Hawaii
