Secondary minerals assemblages that are deposited from thermal solutions at the top of geysers (Velikan, Bolshoy) were investigated. It is established that assemblages are represented mainly by opal and high-silica zeolites (mordenite and heulandite). As conditions of feeding hydrothermal reservoir change, minerals of the kaolinite group and smectites may appear.
