Samples of red cordierite from an non-dislosed locality in the Iakora district were presented in the Mineral Expo show in Paris in early December 2015 (Fritsch et al. 2016). The red cordierite occurs in a 1.50 cm thick layer associated with orange and blue cordierite, parallel to other layers containing kornerupine or blue spinel.
