Colorful and complex specimen with several Serandite crystals in different habits mixed with an assemblage of classic MSH minerals. Loaded with many small crystals on all sides this has the deeper orange color of early finds that is unlike the later pinkish ones.

Serandite with Analcime

Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Québec, Canada
3.7 x 2.6 x 1.4 CM (miniature)

pre Tucson 2015 update

A sharp salmon-pink Serandite crystal is almost completely covered with small, sparkling gem clear Analcimes much like a coating of ice. The few larger Analcimes growing from some faces are the typical milky white and are a nice contrast to the Serandite. A very nice example from mining over 30 years ago at Mt St Hilaire. Excellent condition.

Carletonite -Very well crystallized, intense blue.
stock #A-16-087
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Québec, Canada
6 x 5.4 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1875

Carletonite is one of the most desired of Canadian minerals and it is incredibly rare, it ONLY occurs at Mt St. Hilaire which is also the type locality. This is an even more rare cabinet specimen with great esthetics. None has been found for years, and the original find was mostly thumbnail sized crystals or larger cleavage pieces. There were never many cabinet sized specimens and these are now only very rarely for sale. This has crystals to 3 CM (huge for the specie) with rich color and some distinct zoning. The condition is quite good with the typically crude cubes nicely contrasting with the matrix. For any good collection this is a very eye-catching specimen of a significant, rare mineral.
