Li-Cs pegmatite, famous for a find of deep blue maxixe/maxaxite aquamarine in 1917. Unfortunately the color quickly faded to a whitish yellow after exposure to light. The color is probably caused by the replacement of a missing atom by a vibrating electron in the structure creating a color center, caused by natural radiation.
