Serandite on Albite
stock #AX-27-095
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
2.5 x 1.9 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90
new year 2021

A thumbnail specimen with perfect, lustrous Serandite crystals scattered on a Albite matrix. These are true Serandites and not Schiziolite which was for many years confused and mislabeled. Excellent color, translucent to slightly transparent and in fine condition, these Serandites are tiny but choice from the classic Poudrette Quarry at Mt. St.-Hilaire.

Serandite w. Aegirine etc
stock #20.1-067
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
5.7 x 4.3 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


Serandite crystals up to 3.2 CM with an unusually intense, rich color. This choice piece has a vivid rose pink that looks close to a Rhodochrosite red and contrasts well with the complex matrix. In excellent undamaged condition, the Serandites also have very bright luster. These are also fully translucent and transparent on thin edges. Serandite was never a common mineral and it turns out that many (perhaps most) Serandites in collections are in fact Schizolite and not Serandite. This is a real confirmed Serandite, with top color and form. Outstanding for the size and quality, The classic locality of Mt. St. Hillaire is THE place for this specie, no place else in the world ever had crystals of this size and quality.

Serandite w. Aegerine etc
stock #19.1-293
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 1 x .8 CM (miniature)
price: $330
Spring 2019

A fine single prism of orange- pink Serandite crystal that presents an elongated blocky prismatic form. In exceptional undamaged condition this was collected more than 35 years ago. Recently it has been determined that some of the Serandites from St Hillaire are in fact Schizolite a misidentification that applies to many recent pieces. This piece is not one of those but is a real Serandite.

Serandite (on Albite)
stock #AX-27-094
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
2.2 x 1.8 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $190
Late Summer 2018

A very cute thumbnail of bright, transparent Serandites on contrasting Albite. Serandite is usually opaque or at best milky, translucent on thin edges. These tiny crystals are transparent, colorful and lustrous. As is typical of St Hilaire specimens there are micros of other species as well, most noticeably Polylithonite and Natrolite. Despite the small size the luster and color make this one pop.

Serandite with Natrolite and Elpidite

Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
4.8 x 2.8 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $650
Worldwide mix summer

Cluster of sharp intergrown Serandite crystals with the flat blade habit that host several terminated Natrolite prisms and one Natrolite rosette. The Serandites also have a few needles of Elpidite as well, and all are in remarkable, intact condition. Ex Larry White collection, this includes his homemade Balsawood base. Fine delicate prisms and vibrant pink color, this is an uncommon form for Serandite and this piece is especially esthetic.

new june 17

An esthetic cluster of well formed leaf-like pink Serandite with contrasting white Analcime crystals. A classic association from Mt St Hillaire, the only locale where sizable, fine crystals were found. Minor black Aegirine is also noted. A lot of visual impact for a small specimen. In excellent condition.

Serandite with Aegerine etc.
stock #AX-16-477
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
5.8 x 3.8 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $550


Unusual habit with brilliant red-orange color and many gemmy crystals forming a very attractive Serandite from the great Mt St Hillaire. The largest crystal is 2.5 CM across and is a blocky style, but the smaller crystals show many different habits and terminations. Some of these are Bipyramids or have complex parallel prisms and multiple stepped terminations. The luster is excellent, the condition is overall quite fine there is a break on backside where removed and a few very small wilbers noted on minor crystals only seen with 10X magnification. Classic locale and specie, attractive and unusual.
