A highly evolved, rare-element class, LCT-type granitic pegmatite of the spodumene-subtype category. The largest Li-Be-Nb-Ta-Cs pegmatite-hosted rare-metal deposit in the Chinese Altai orogenic belt. Exploited for pollucite, spodumene, lepidolite, beryl and columbite-tantalite.

The Koktokay No. 3 pegmatite intruded metagabbro. It shows a well-developed internal textural zonation, both in the thin but extensive subhorizontal bottom section, and in the cupola. From the outermost textural zone inward, nine mineralogical-textural zones can be distinguished: (1) graphic pegmatite zone; (2) sugary albite zone; (3) blocky microcline zone; (4) muscovite-quartz zone; (5) cleavelandite-spodumene zone; (6) quartz-spodumene zone; (7) platy albite-muscovite zone; (8) lepidolite-platy albite zone; (9) blocky quartz and microcline core (Wang et al. 1981; Zhu et al. 2000; Wang et al. 2006).
