Chabazite-Ca, Heulandite-Ca
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 3.4 x 1.7 cm
Wasson Bluff, Parrsboro, Bay of Fundy, Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia, Canada
From the great find in late 2007, these are simply some of the finest color Chabazite specimens from any locality. 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 color with very sharp faces, excellent luster and are aesthetically intergrown with beige Heulandite and white Calcite to form what is an overall beautiful display piece. The largest Chabazite "rhomb" measures 1.7 cm.
