Stilbite, Chabazite

Specimen # 100653
Mineral: Stilbite, Chabazite
Location: Wasson's Bluff, Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia, Canada
Size: 4.6 x 3.8 x 1.5 cm


A beautiful miniature, this thin plate of orange chabazite crystals hosts golden yellow “wheat sheaf” clusters of stilbite crystals. These stilbites are a super colour! The background chabazites show good lustre and sharpness. The stilbites are in perfect condition and the chabazites are in very good condition, with are minor edge rubs (and incomplete crystals areound the periphery where this was removed from the rock). This plate of crystals has been stabilized/reinforced from behind, as it was too delicate to survive without that help. A sweet specimen of this classic Nova Scotia combination.
