Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Olivine is one of many low value minerals that are magma-safe, and can be used for floodgates and mechanisms used for the controlling of magma. It is also one of the few minerals that contains native platinum (the other being magnetite).

Items built using olivine will be dark green.

In the real world[edit]

Olivine is a magnesium iron silicate mineral with the chemical formula (Mg,Fe)2SiO4. It is defined by its bright green color. Gem-quality examples of the mineral are called peridot.
