1.5" Eudialyte Specimen - Kukisvumchorr Mountain, Russia

This is a section of rough, purple/magenta eudialyte collected from Kirovskii (Kirovsky) Mine on Kukisvumchorr Mountain in Russia. It has been mounted to an acrylic display base with mineral tack.

Eudialyte is an uncommon ore of zirconium that forms in alkaline igneous rocks such as nepheline syenites. Eudialyte is as a minor gemstone, but its use is limited by its rarity, which is compounded by its poor crystal habit. Eudialyte's rarity makes locality useful in its identification. Its prominent localities include Mont Saint-Hilaire in Québec, Canada; the Kola Peninsula in northwestern Russia; and Poços de Caldas in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
