The chemical formula of mineral Clinoferrosilite  is indicated by (Fe++,Mg)2Si2O6. Clinoferrosilite commonly occurs as acicular crystals in lithophysae in obsidian at Lake Naivasha, Kenya. Clinoferrosilite is known to be dimorphous with ferrosilite and usually forms a series with clinoenstatite. Clinoferrosilite is usually found from near Lake Naivasha, Rift Valley, Kenya. Mineral Clinoferrosilite was named for its monoclinic crystal system and chemical identity with ferrosilite. Mineral Clinoferrosilite is known to crystallize in the monoclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, the monoclinic system of crystal formation comprises crystals having three axes of unequal lengths. Two of which are usually found in a position that is oblique or not perpendicular to one another. However, both of which are commonly found perpendicular to the third axis. Mineral Clinoferrosilite is commonly found with distinct cleavage. It is commonly found colored brown, colorless or green in hand sample. The density measure of mineral Clinoferrosilite is usually found 4.068 grams per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Clinoferrosilite are found transparent in hand sample. Clinoferrosilite is also found brittle in structure which is generally displayed by glasses and most non-metallic minerals. The hardness measure of mineral Clinoferrosilite is usually found ranging from 5 to 6. Mineral Clinoferrosilite is also commonly found showing vitreous or glassy luster in reflected light of polarizing microscope for mineralogists. Clinoferrosilite is also commonly found leaving a white streak when rubbed on white porcelain streak plate. Clinoferrosilite is also commonly found showing biaxial positive figure with 0.0280 birefringence when evaluated between crossed nicols of polarizing microscope. Mineral Clinoferrosilite is also found not radioactive.
