Summary: The geological set-up, chemical composition, physical and optical properties, and X-ray data of one sample of chrome-chlorite (kämmererite) and of a chrome-garnet (uvarovite) from Kalrangi chromite mines, Orissa, India, are presented here. Chrome-bearing solution contributed in the formation of both the minerals in the hydrothermal stage. It is suggested that the garnet is an intermediary form between uvarovite and pyrope.
