Sillimanite 1

If Chuck Norris were a gemstone-quality piece of ancient reef, he'd be a lot like me: tough, rare and going it alone on a 400-million-year-old beach off the southeastern coast of Alaska. You won't find me sitting daintily above an engagement ring. No sir. On the rare occasions I make it into polite society, it's as inlay in a REAL men's ring or in the handle of a 17-inch hunting knife (preferably one that pulls from a shagreen sheath). Close friends call me that grumpy old fossil. Others who aren't so intimate call me favosite. But it's my business name I want you to guess.

Who am I?
