What is a Pseudomorph?

In Mineralogy, a Pseudomorph is when one mineral replaces another. Minerals often grow together and on each other but certain minerals are more prone to becoming pseudomorphs, if given the right conditions. The formation of pseudomorphs can vary. Some begin by a mineral growing on another mineral, coating the surface, while the original mineral begins to dissolve and be replaced. Pseudomorphs can also form by the mineral composition changing one molecule at a time into a different mineral. The result is a hybrid mineral formation that exhibits the habit and structural form of the original mineral but with the replacement mineral. These mineral hybrids are referred to as replacement mineral After original mineral Pseudomorph

An incrustation pseudomorph, also called epimorph or perimorph, is the result of a process where one mineral coats another. The original mineral may or may not dissolve during the process, as this new mineral incrustation forms on its surface, encasing the original mineral. 

Pseudomorphs are complex and intrinsically variable mineral specimens, making these unusual formations fascinating and collectible to mineral collectors.
