Includes a natrolite vein on the Southern slope of Eveslogchorr Mt. between Yuksporlak pass and the 1st left tributary of Vuonnemiiok river.
This natrolite vein was mined before 1980 and was blasted in 1993. The main part of the material from this vein was collected from the slope, not from solid rock. The natrolite crystals were harmed by frost and show typical pearly lustre as result of cracking of microinclusions filled with water.
