Stilbite, Analcime

Specimen # 101163
Mineral: Stilbite, Analcime
Location: Stilbite, Analcime, Cape Split, Kings Co., Nova Scotia, Canada
Size: 5.5 x 5.2 x 2.6 cm


This aesthetic specimen features a 1.6 cm group of slightly divergent light brown stilbite crystals set in the middle of a bed of small sparkling white analcime crystals. The stilbite crystals are crisp and lustrous with sharp, clean crystal forms, and stand out nicely given the contrast with the analcime. In excellent condition – no damage. Collected in 2013, this is a sweet stilbite specimen, different from the norm, given the associaton and contrast.
