KCAC Mine, San Benito County, California, USA
Miniature, 5.3 x 0.9 x 0.8 cm
Ex. Al Ordway
This is a fine single crystal of lustrous and translucent, ivory colored natrolite, that becomes gemmy and brighter at the termination. I have never seen such a superb, elongated and well formed crystal from this region - usually natrolite is just the stuff you dissolve to find benitoites lurking within. As a single sharp crystal, this is a real rarity for the deposit.
