Serandite, Albite, Aegirine, Leucophanite
Poudrette quarry (Demix quarry; Uni-Mix quarry; Desourdy quarry), Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville RCM, Monteregie, Quebec, Canada
Small Cabinet, 8.9 x 4.7 x 4.4 cm
A striking and classic specimen of two, intergrown, highly lustrous, superbly crystallized, salmon-colored serandite crystals aesthetically framed by starkly contrasting tabular and blocky albite crystals. This excellent specimen is nicely accented with lustrous, black aegirine needles to 2.0 cm and a single, very well-placed front and center, gemmy, amber, 5 mm leucophanite crystal. This is a fairly large, dramatic and highly desirable combination specimen with serandite from this famed locale. Ex. Larry Conklin specimen.
