price: $260
Fall 22

A fine, old large Chabazite specimen with bright sparkling pink crystals covering most of a blocky matrix. Ex Moritz and Adolph Lechner, Frank Edwards and John Marshall collections, This was handled by Schortmann's Minerals when they obtained and sold the Lechner (Austria) collection. Their label dates to about 1936, though the Lechner collection is far older, begun in the late 1800 era but included several much older collections. The label has the older spelling of the locality. There is still a working Quarry in this area but this specimen is certainly far older. In excellent condition, the price in 1936 was two dollars, a sizable amount at that time.
