An old-time, fine combination specimen from the Poudrette Quarry at Mt. St-Hilaire, Quebec. Lustrous, rose-red rhodochrosite crystals are attractively clustered above a matrix of sharp, pearlescent analcime crystals. Aegirine crystals are embedded on both sides of the piece. This is an older combination specimen from a classic locale.
