Stilbite-Ca, Chabazite-Ca
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.6 x 2.9 cm
Wasson Bluff, Parrsboro, Bay of Fundy, Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia, Canada
From the great find in late 2007. Chabazite is typically white or off-white in color, but to find rich color crystals like this is very significant. The pseudo-rhombohedral (they're actually triclinic) crystals on this specimen are a rich salmon color with very sharp faces, excellent luster and are aesthetically intergrown to form what is an overall beautiful display piece. The largest "rhomb" measures 1.2 cm on edge. The piece is topped by a lovely golden crystal aggregate of Stilbite.
