    Santa's Reindeer

    Now we all know the famous reindeers:
    Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen and our old favourite Rudolph......but there is a tenth reindeer that often gets mentioned in songs can you think of her name?

    Olive
    (Mg2,Fe2SiO4) A naturally occurring mineral composed of fosterite and fayalite, crushed and used as a molding sand. Usually the sand of choice in manganese steel casting due to its basicity. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
