XRD results showed that the admontite mineral lost all of its structural water and turned to a dehydrated magnesium borate mineral MgB4O7 (pdf 00-031-0787).
Primary borate minerals are extremely soluble; therefore, unless protected after initial deposition from both surface and ground water, they quickly dissolve and are washed into the sea.
Nifontovite is a hydrated calcium borate mineral, [Ca.sub.3][B.sub.6][O.sub.6](OH)[.sub.12]([H.sub.2]O)[.sub.2], first described from the Novofrolovo mine in the Turinsk ore deposit, Central Ural Mountains, Russia (Malinko and Lisitsyn, 1961), where it occurs in a skarn associated with andraditegrossular and szaibelyite.

The relatively small production of less than 1000 tons of ore per year, as compared to more than 1,000,000 tons per year of other borate minerals sold by the company, did not justify the increase in operating costs; the limited ceramic market was too small for the mine to yield a profit.
Also present are insoluble impurities--anhydrite, magnesite, hematite, borate minerals (including boracite) and clays--which can make up as much as 50% of the rock, but are typically present at a much lower concentration.
