Analcime on Natrolite etc.
stock #17.1-455
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Québec, Canada
5.8 x 4.7 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Fall 22

A classic from the famed Mont Saint-Hilaire which is perhaps the world's most important Alkaline Pegmatite. This locality has so many outstanding and unusual combinations of minerals. This specimen features a 3.4 CM diameter Analcime crystal that is sharp, glassy and complete. This rests on several other minerals perhaps the most prominent are Natrolites some of which have pseudomorphed after an earlier mineral. A nice example of Saint-Hilaire Alkalai minerals.

Analcime on Serandite/ Schiziolte
stock #18.1-744
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Québec, Canada
2.7 x 1.7 x 1.1 (thumbnail)
price: $65

Classic Mt. St. Hillaire specimen of a cream Analcime crystal nicely perched on a salmon color Serandite and or Schiziolite cluster. The Serandite is broken at one end but terminated (crudely) on the other. It has been recently determined that some but not all of this habit Serandite is in fact Schiziolite and requires testing. It seems that some crystals are also zoned and have both species present. This one has not be analyzed. As is typical on specimens from this locale, there are other species present as micro crystals too, a Polylithonite rosette and a small cluster of Rhodochrosite. Nice combo thumbnail.

Analcime on Prehnite - modern classic locale
stock #17.1-539
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
5 x 4.3 x2 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $220
Spring update

A perfect 2 CM glassy Analcime crystal is perfectly set on a contrasting green Prehnite. The matrix also hosts tiny Apophyllite, Quartz and Laumontite that add some extra sparkle. The Analcime from Goboboseb is not well known and almost never this large or transparent. Choice and undamaged, a very good value.
