Summary:
A complex and highly mineralized granitic pegmatite-aplite dike, located near the village of Pala. The pegmatite was originally mined during the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a source of lithium from massive pods of lepidolite that occur in the dike. Was reopened in the late 1960s as a gem mine and has periodically produced specimens and gem material of elbaite, as well as morganite and kunzite. The mine is particularly known for its reddish-pink elbaite.

The deposit is on private land, patented in 1949 by Blanche C. Crane.

In general, however, the orthoclase constitutes only a small fraction of the total potash feldspar within the dikes as a whole.

Triplite
Formula: (Mn2+,Fe2+)2(PO4)(F,OH)
Habit: Tabular and fracture-filling masses with rough faces; cleavage is fairly well developed.
Colour: Deep-tan to dark reddish-brown on freshly broken surfaces; resinous luster.
Description: Triplite occurs sparingly in the Stewart pegmatite, where it is associated with lithiophilite and triphylite. It forms crystals with rough faces, measuring 1/4 inch to 5 inches in diameter, with an average of about an inch. The mineral also occurs as tabular, fracture-filling masses within quartz, and rarely within coarse quartz-spodumene or quartz-perthite varieties of pegmatite. Most crystals are heavily stained with manganese oxides, and many are coated with a blue-gray film of very finely crystalline vivianite. The vivianite appears to have been derived from the triplite crystals.
