Chromite

CHROMIUM ORE

 

This mineral is the only ore of chromium, a metal that is one of the most recently recognized essential nutrients. Studies have shown that chromium is important for insulin function. It is often lost in food-refining processes.

 

The only ore of chromium, brownish-black Chromite is found across the world. The metal chromium was only recognized as essential to man in the 1960s. The first convincing evidence came from experiments showing that rats fed a chromium-deficient diet develop symptoms similar to diabetes. Other tests have shown that people with diabetes tolerate sugar better when given extra chromium. However, because there are no clear-cut deficiency symptoms, no one is sure how much we need.
