Danburite and Datolite
Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
3.4 x 2.1 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $325


Gemmy light blue Datolite crystals clustered on a gemmy colorless Danburite crystal. The Danburite has some small etched zones that show re-crystallization, but overall this is a sharp prism. From Dalnegorsk, this is a choice miniature of these two species that looks fine from practically any angle. Our background for this specimen does not specify which part of the mining complex was the source for this piece but it seems certain to be from the Bor Pit. No damage; esthetic and unusual.
