Stilbite with Analcime

Specimen # 102057
Mineral: Stilbite with Analcime
Location: Stilbite with Analcime, Cape Split, Blomidon Peninsula, Kings Co., Nova Scotia, Canada
Size: 6.6 x 6.6 x 4.1 cm


A cluster of sharp lustrous stlibites rises up over this specimen. These stilbite crystals are well-defined and nicely terminated. This piece could be oriented in a few ways – I prefer supporting it to stand as in the first photo, as it really showcases the stilbite cluster, including the sharpest and most lustrous of the terimnation faces. Oriented in other ways, one sees the analcime crystals and the associated stilbite crystals which some others might prefer. In excellent condition – no damage as in the first photo, and looking at the back of the specimen (as I would orient it, the back) there is an incomplete stilbite cluster lower on the piece. A nice Nova Scotia stilbite with the unusual colour characteristic of the best from these finds at Cape Split.
