Serandite With Analcime and Aegirine
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 5.5 x 4.0 x 2.5 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
Very attractive combination specimen with a terrific Serandite crystal as the centerpiece. This crystal is an amazing 3.6 cm on edge, 1.2 cm thick, and has the classic deep salmon-flesh color and luster. The lustrous Aegirine crystal along one side is 2 cm long, and the Analcime crystals do exhibit some well-defined crystal faces. This specimen is from the famous pockets of late 1976, with this distinct combination of balancing analcime! There is some minute edge wear not visible at first as you can see, but considering the overall quality and importance of this specimen as an aesthetic miniature, it is minimal.
