Serandite with Aegerine, Feldspar, and Muscovite
Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, Canada
Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 6.0 x 5.0 cm
Ex. Kay Robertson

Rich, intricate specimen from the famous Mt. St. Hilaire complex that features Serandite, Aegerine, and Feldspar. Serandite is among the Mt. St. Hilaire royalty, and the salmon-colored crystals here are tabular to lathe-like. Their luster is very good, and they are intergrown with long, slender crystals of lustrous Aegerine and numerous blocky to tabular Feldspars. The largest of the Serandites is about 2.4 cm long and wide. While not the most elegant of pieces, this small cab is nonetheless a very good representative combo piece from a major locality.
