According to MINDAT this species was discredited after many years, only in 1997. It is now thought to be either barian Phillipsite-Ca or calcian Harmotome - though I have not analyzed this specimen to see which of these close relatives it trends to most. Originally described from Buck Creek Mine (Cullakenee Mine), Buck Creek, Clay Co., North Carolina, this locality. At the time, obviously, it was thought fairly important as it was owned by the great 1800's collector G. J. Brush who gave his collection to Yale...and then the Academy must have traded it from Yale to obtain a sample!
