Ulexite is a hydrated sodium calcium borate hydroxide mineral that belongs to the carbonate class of minerals.
Ulexite occurs as fibrous white or grey to colourless, transparent to translucent crystals with a silky lustre.
Ulexite occurs with minerals such as borax, colemanite, hydroboracite and other borate minerals.
This stone is found in the USA, Chile and Kazakhstan.
Ulexite is found with the mineral borax and is directly deposited in arid regions from the evaporation of water in intermittent lakes called playas. The playas form only during rainy seasons due to runoff from nearby mountains. The runoff is rich in the element boron and is highly concentrated by evaporation in the arid climate. Eventually the concentration is so great that crystals of ulexite, borax and other boron minerals form and accumulate to great thickness.
Specimens of ulexite may form a "cotton ball" tuft of acicular crystals. Ulexite is also found in a vein-like bedding habit composed of closely-packed fibrous crystals. This variety is called "TV Rock" and is popular in many rock shops, especially with children. If the specimen is approximately an inch thick and is polished flat on both sides perpendicular to the fibres, then an unusual optical phenomenon can be seen. The fibres will behave like optical fibres and transmit an image from one side of the specimen to the other. In other words, a good specimen, resting on a newspaper will have the writing appear to be on top of the specimen without any distortion of the lettering. The newspaper can easily be read upon the surface of the ulexite! This is a phenomenal optical property that will stun anyone who has not seen it before. This effect is partially the result of the large spaces in the sodium octahedral chains.
