The southern region around Miass in the Ilmen Mountains was heavily mined during the 19th century and produced primarily clear topaz crystals (3-4 kg) of complex forms and rare green beryls (to 25 cm) associated with amazonite in miarolitic pegmatites.
Farther afield, these minerals are also present in the cryolite deposits of Ivigtut, Greenland (Petersen and Secher, 1993) and at Miass (Miask) in the Ural Mountains of Russia (Palache et al., 1951).
