Interesting Fact -- Epidote was named by Rene Hauy, a mineralogist at the University of Natural History in Paris in the early 1800's. The name comes from the Greek "epi" for "over" plus "didonai" for "to give" which is supposed to translate roughly as "increase". This refers to Hauy's observation that some of the mineral's prism faces are longer than others.
