Brucite is a mineral that is composed of magnesium hydroxide, with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. It is named after the American mineralogist Archibald Bruce, who first identified it in 1824. Brucite is a relatively soft mineral with a Mohs hardness of 2.5 to 3, and a specific gravity of 2.4 to 2.6.

Brucite is typically found in magnesium-rich rocks such as serpentinites and in some hydrothermal deposits. It can be found in various parts of the world, including the United States, Canada, Italy, Russia, and China.

Brucite is sometimes used as a decorative stone due to its attractive pale green or white color, and it is sometimes cut and polished into cabochons or beads for use in jewelry. However, due to its relatively soft nature, it is not commonly used in jewelry that will be subjected to regular wear and tear.
