Known for its distinct, well-formed and often gemmy crystals, danburite crystals are sometimes coated or encrusted by druzy quartz. Discovered by Charles Shepard in 1839, Danburite derives its name from the city of Danbury, Connecticut where it was first described. Daburite forms in contact with metamorphic rocks, high-temp hydrothermal veins, salt dome deposits. It’s a relatively commonly occurring mineral, though large facetable gemstone quality material is rare.
Known for its distinct, well-formed and often gemmy crystals, danburite crystals are sometimes coated or encrusted by druzy quartz. The crystals are often prismatic with distinctive chisel-topped, wedge-shaped, or pointed terminations with a tapering V. Sometimes the crystals form tabular or in groups of small prismatic crystals. They are usually transparent-translucent, rarely opaque.
