Type Occurrence of Burovaite-CaHide

General Appearance of Type Material:
extended prismatic crystals 1–8 mm long. The crystals are pseudorhombic due to multiple twinning. prismatic crystals occur as radiaxial aggregates and parallel intergrowths with orange-red labuntsovite-Mn
Geological Setting of Type Material:
aegirine–feldspar pegmatite intense with low-temperature hydrothermal alteration of primary minerals in the vein resulted in the formation of various low-temperature phases.
