Summary: A study has been made of a large clinoptilolite deposit in the Lesser Caucasus (Azerbaidzhan SSR). The geological conditions have been examined and a number of samples investigated by optical, electron-microscopic, chemical, X-ray, thermal, and infra-red methods. Based on these investigations and on comparison with previous literature, mineralogical, chemical, and geochemical conclusions are drawn and conditions for clinoptilolite genesis are considered.
