CRYSTAL SYSTEM: Triclinic.

PRINCIPLE OF FORMATION: Secondary.

MINERALOGY: The ulexita is chemically a hydrous calcium and sodium borate, is the most stable in normal environmental conditions borate, hence it is the final product in the alteration of other minerals like boron hydroboracite, colemanite, inyoite, borax etc. It comes in Tertiary sediments mio-Pliocene either singenéticas layers or epigenetically filling (term used to describe a process that occurs on or near the surface of the Earth) cracks and crevices or replacing pseudomórficamente (It is the mineral that occurs under the crystalline form of the other.) to other borates, his usual habit is rounded into small nodules, as lenticular masses, which is often called "cotton balls", sometimes with well-formed crystals.

 


MYTHOLOGY: The most widespread mineral boron in the Puna Argentina, also occurring in salt lakes in Chile, Bolivia, and Peru, is a very white and very soft and light mineral hence the adjective in English cotton ball (balls cotton). Its needle-like crystals or fragments polished transparent, reveal what is behind a very characteristic way, as if were projected inside, the so called the "stone television", for the ability to transmit images through their natural fibers. It's like an artificial optical fiber, but natural.
