The natrolite crystals are sharp, with highly lustrous terminations that sparkle in the light. The calcite crystals are well-defined and complex.There are associated crystals of analcime and stilbite. In excellent condition as displayed – a couple of contacts and missing stilbites near the bottom of the natrolite group, and an incomplete stilbite group on the back. Stands perfectly for display – a very handsome Nova Scotia natolite.
