Granite pegmatite. The locality name is better translated as "Olenii Ridge", suggesting a specific location rather than somewhere along a mountainous "range". Olenii Ridge is a small area with several granite pegmatites. Unfortunately, the original pegmatite that yielded the type material for olenite is unknown (Pavel Kartashov and Igor Pekov, personal communications, 2012). The various pink olenite tourmalines which have been sold as olenite are not certainly from the type location and the recently sold specimens may or may not be olenite.
