Clinohumite was first discovered in metamorphosed limestone ejected from Mt Vesuvius in 1876. The name reflects its monoclinic structure and a similarity to humite. Transparent gem-quality bright yellow to deep orange clinohumite was found only recently (in the early 1980s, and later in 2000). in the Pamir Mountains of Tadzhikistan.

Clinohumite is of interest to collectors, especially the rare transparent forms which are highly collectible. Gems for collectors are ocassionally cut from transparent stones. Sharp crystals and grains of Hydroxylclinohumite of excellent quality come from Sar-e-Sang, Kokcha Valley, Badakhshan Province, Afghanistan. Clinohumite associated with contrasting dark Spinel is found in the Hunza Valley, Gilgit, Pakistan.
