Cabinet, 10.1 x 5.4 x 3.8 cm
Danburitovyi Mine (Danburite Mine; Danburity Mine; "B" open pit) Mine, Dal'negorsk B deposit, Dal'negorsk (Dalnegorsk; Tetyukhe; Tjetjuche; Tetjuche), Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern
The danburite mine at Dal'negorsk has produced more transparent crystals than this one, certainly (this one appears to have a covering of microcrystalline quartz on it), but what makes this specimen unique is its large size and sharpness. Its overall form is magnificent; and, it is complete all around. This is older material, as the danburite mine at Dal'negorsk has been closed for some time.
