Geschichte: I found this stone near Khoroshiv, in the Zhytomyr region. It is very large (more than 100 kg) and beautiful due to red iron oxide streaks. It had once been removed from the Volyn mine and left near the flooded quarry. Now you can sit on it and enjoy the view of the blue water.
Geologie: Beryl, topaz, feldspar and quartz are the main minerals extracted from the pegmatites of the Volyn deposit. The discovery and exploration history of the deposit goes back to the XIX century. The mine is not operated anymore.
