Mesolite, Thomsonite
Goble, Columbia Co., Oregon, USA
Cabinet, 13.3 x 11.2 x 7.8 cm
A big, rich and rare American specimen - an intact pocket of hairlike acicular crystals of mesolite growing off balls of thomsonite (both minerals are hydrated sodium calcium aluminum silicate) from Oregon. This is another unique and hard-to-obtain piece that came out of the noted Hauck Collection. Not something you see around on the market, to be sure! 13.3 x 11.2 x 7.8cm
