This is an eye-catching specimen of DATOLITE - CaBSiO4 (OH) which I acquired at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show. This gorgeous piece comes from the Bor Pit, Dal'negorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia (the Russian word "bor" means boron). Dal'negorsk (sometimes spelled Dalnegorsk) is a famous mining region in eastern Russia, located about 300 km northeast of Vladivostok. This skarn-type boron deposit has produced what are arguably the finest datolite specimens ever found, along with other fine minerals including red quartz clusters, danburite, axinite, andradite, and more. I purchased this specimen from one of the many Russian dealers who were set up at the show, and this specimen was one of the nicest I saw.
