This piece features beautiful pink twinned crystals of gmelinite to 1.1 cm. Sharp and lustrous, these crystals exhibit the classic fine triangular crystal growth patterns. In excellent condition - no damage to any of the main part of the specimen (incomplete crystals at the outer edge on the right hand side - this faces away from view as I would display it).   Excellent gmelinite specimen! 

From the collection of well-known Nova Scotia collector Terry Collett, this specimen was collected on August 19, 2011.

If you are interested in the crystal morphololgy and twinning in Nova Scotia gmelinites (I love these!), click here. Some great crystal drawings on p.60.
