DEFINITION
  • An isometric iron chromium oxide: FeCr2O4 used as a refractory material, because it has a high heat stability. Extracted chromium from chromite is used in chrome plating and alloying for production of corrosion resistant superalloys, nichrome, and stainless steel. Chromium is used as a pigment for glass, glazes, and paint, and as an oxidizing agent for tanning leather. http://www.webmineral.com/data/Chromite.shtml http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromite
