Stilbite With Calcite
Five Islands, Nova Scotia, Canada
Cabinet, 9.5 x 7.3 x 2.8 cm
Ex. Al Ordway; Robert Fender
Intergrown sheaves of lustrous and translucent, richly-colored stilbite, to 8 mm in length, are emplaced on matrix. Very minor colorless calcite is situated on the lower front side of the specimen. This piece has very deep color for the locale. Self-collected by Robert Fender many years ago (probably circa 1960s-1970s)
