Catapleiite, Analcime, Aegirine
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville RCM, Monteregie, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.6 x 1.5 cm
A classic and excellent combination specimen from the famous Mt.St-Hilaire of Quebec, with an unusually robust crystal! This is an old-timer. This is a well-terminated, very glassy, tabular, tan catapleiite crystal is nicely accented by sharp, porcelaneous, 3 mm analcime crystal on one edge and by aegirine crystals included within the catapleiite. A showy and desirable combo piece from this famous locality.
