Zorite

Named for its color, “the rosy radiance of the sky at dawn” in Russian, Zorite is found in intimate association with nepheline in filled fractures within pegmatite veins of the Lovozero Massif in the Kola Peninsula, Russia. The Lovozero Massif is the only locality for Zorite. Zoite forms “as intergrowths of prismatic, acicular crystals.”
