Abstract
New data on the composition and genesis of volkonskoite based on mineralogical investigation of the mineral and enclosing rocks are presented. SEM investigations of volkonskoites display undoubted role of organic matter (living and dead) in the formation of volkonskoite, i.e. in the chromium concentration and fixation in the smectite structure.
