The chemical formula of Osbornite is indicated by TiN or Titanium Nitride. Osbornite is actually a Native Elements. Osbornite is most commonly used as mineral specimen. Osbornite is one of the rarest minerals from Earth. This can be said because it is not found in terrestrial rocks. This mineral Osbornite is only found in Enstatite Chondrite meteorites. These stoney meteorites contain minerals that have been extremely reduced, the opposite of oxidized.

 

            Osbornite is most commonly found bronze yellow to golden yellow, which can be seen more splendidly exhibited when viewed with the aid of petrographic polarizing light microscopes. Osbornite is also most commonly found exhibiting a metallic luster when specimen is viewed in reflected light of petrographic polarizing light microscopes used in optical mineralogy. Most crystals of mineral Osbornite are found opaque in appearance. The crystal habit of Osbornite is known to crystallize in the isometric system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, this isometric crystal system comprises crystals having three axes, all of which are perpendicular to one another and all are found equal in lengths. The crystal habits of mineral Osbornite as described in the field of optical mineralogy usually include small disseminated grains in meteorites. The hardness measure of mineral Osbornite when specimen is evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually 7. The specific gravity measure of mineral Osbornite is usually found ranging from 5.3 grams per cubic centimeters to 5.4 grams per cubic centimeters, which ic considered above average for metallic minerals. Mineral Osbornite is most commonly associated with other interesting minerals including iron-nickel, plagioclase, enstatite, sinoinite, cohenite, and oldhamite. The best field indicators of mineral Osbornite include color, source, density, and associations. Mineral Osbornite notably occurs at several localities including Gorakhpur, Basti district, Uttah Pradesh, India.
