Choice old thumbnail that dates backs to the days when Silesia was still part of Germany, and hadn't been ceded back to Poland yet. The brick red Chabazite has very good luster and is well-formed, with the main crystal being 1 cm. It sits nicely on lustrous, olive green Epidote crystals, the largest of which is about 1.9 cm tall. Good aesthetics, and a good combination of minerals that are far above average for the species at this location.
