From the new find in 2007. Chabazite is typically white or off-white in color, but to find rich color crystals like this is very significant. The pseudo-rhombohedral (they're actually triclinic) crystals on this specimen are a rich salmon-red color with very sharp faces, excellent luster and are aesthetically intergrown. The piece is associated with very minor pearly crystal aggregates of Heulandite and are sitting on minor matrix.
