Natrolite, Analcime

Specimen # 101133
Mineral: Natrolite, Analcime
Location: Natrolite, Analcime, Wasson's Bluff, Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia
Size: 9.6 x 8.0 x 2.5 cm


A cabinet-sized plate covered with sparkling analcime crystals, and hosting balls (to 1.1 cm) of radiating natrolite crystals. There are aggregates of cream-coloured stilbite crystals in association. The seams where these are found are so narrow, it is unusual to see a plate of this size extracted in this condition (excellent condition, no damage – a few incomplete crystals at the periphery where this was removed from the rock). This specimen was collected in 2010. A beautiful piece!
