About These Serandite Specimens
This serandite is from the large 1988 pocket, one of the greatest mineral finds ever made at Mont Saint-Hilaire. This pocket was approximately three metres across, and yielded excellent serandite crystals of distinctive intense salmon pink-orange hue. The pocket also contained balls and aggregates of leifite crystals. The serandite crystals from this pocket are considered among the finest from Mont Saint-Hilaire.
