An exceptional and fine example of this rather rare Sodium Zirconium Silicate. From the famed find in 1989, many consider these specimens to be the best ever of the specie. The slender pointed crystals are lustrous, transparent and clustered into several sprays. There are just something like 40 known Zirconium minerals, most are super rare, and only a few can form attractive crystals. This is a particularly good looking Elpidite and since this era at St-Hilaire, there have not been anything like these found since.
