Steinhardt P., Bindi L. Once upon a time in Kamchatka: the search for natural quasicrystals. In: Philosophical Magazine, vol. 91 (19-21) pp. 2421 - 2426. Taylor and Francis, 2011.
We present evidence for a naturally occurring quasicrystal consisting of micron-sized grains of Al63Cu24Fe13 with icosahedral symmetry embedded in a sample of khatyrkite (nominally, (Cu,Zn)Al2) obtained from the Khatyrka ultramafic zone of the Koryak Mountains in the northern half of the Kamchatka Peninsula.
