Gmelenite Pseudo. Chabazite
Wasson's Bluff, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, Canada
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.8 x 1.9 cm
This is a dramatic cluster of large gmelenites to about an inch, which have replaced chabazite. The luster is unusually good on this piece, almost glassy and so far better than on others I have seen in the past! This is new material collected recently from this classic old locality that is difficult to access, by my friend Rod Tyson (a semi-retired mineral dealer and well-known Canadian field collector!).
