Poudrette quarry (Demix quarry; Uni-Mix quarry; Desourdy quarry), Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville RCM, Monteregie, Quebec, Canada
A classic, sharp, glassy, orange serandite crystal aesthetically set on a shard of matrix covered with smaller serandites, black manganoneptunite and white leifite crystals from the Poudrette Quarry at Mt. St-Hilaire, Quebec. Very highly representative of the rare species in combination and world-famous locale.
