Description: This is a specimen of Datolite on the Diabase matrix. Datolite is commonly formed by hydrothermal or volcanic processes. The name derives from the Greek term ‘dateishal’, which means to divide, alluding to the often grainy aggregates of Datolite which break easily. Datolite is mined as a source of boron (B).
