Specimen # 100635
Mineral: Gmelinite, Heulandite
Location: Gmelinite, Heulandite, Two Islands, Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia, Canada

A super classy minature featuring sharp, glassy gmelinite crystals to 2.1 cm, on a thin plate with pearly colourless heulandite crystals. The gmelinite crystals are beautiful delicate pink and brilliantly lustrous, with triangular growth patterns. In exceptional condition – no damage (just incomplete crystals at the margins where it was removed from the surrounding rock). Great specimen!

From the collection of well-known Nova Scotia collector Terry Collett, this specimen was collected in 2003.
