Serandite, Leucophanite, Polylithionite, Aegirine
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville RCM, Monteregie, Quebec, Canada
Cabinet, 10.5 x 7.7 x 6.0 cm
A cool looking CABINET-SIZED Mt. St-Hilaire combination specimen which includes two RARE species, leucophanite and polylithionite. The bulk of the piece is this amazing looking, etched and bladed, salmon-pink serandite. The central, vertical-bladed serandite knob is striking atop the horizontal-bladed serandite. On either side of the knob lie vuggy areas which include lustrous, pastel-yellow leucophanite crystals, lustrous, pearlescent to glassy, polylithionite plates and black aegirine crystals. All in all, a very showy and unusual combination specimen from this very famous locality, of large size.
