The chemical formula of mineral Amakinite is indicated by Fe2+0.7Mg0.2Mn2+0.1(OH)2. This mineral is usually noted in a drill core as thin veins and pockets in kimberlite. Amakinite is usually found at lucky Eastern Kimberlite pipe found in Russia. Amakinite is usually found crystallizing in the trigonal system of crystal formation.

            Mineral Amakinite is usually found showing indistinct cleavage when viewed with the aid of polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. It is most commonly found showing yellow green or light green color that appears more intereseting when viewed with the aid of petrographic polarizing light microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. The specific gravity measure of the mineral is usually found ranign from 2.925 to 2.98 grams per cubic centimeters giving 2.95 average. Most crytals of mineral Amakinite are found transparent in appearance. Amakinite is most commonly found showing uneven fracture when evaluated under polarizing microscope for mineralogists. In the field of optical mineralogy, these are actually the flat surfaces, not the cleavage, fractured in an uneven pattern. The crystal habit of the mineral as described in the field of optical mineralogy usually includes irregualr grains occuring as splotchy, anhedral crystals froming inclusions in other minerals or rocks. The hardness measure of the mineral when it is evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually found ranging from 3.5 to 4. It is also most commonly found showing pearly luster when viewed in reflected light of petrographic polarizing microscope used in optical mineralogy. Amakinite is also considered as a weakly magnetic mineral. Amakinite is a non-radioactive mineral.
