Suolunite
stock #18-AX-24-497
Lac D Amiante, Black Lake Mine, LAB Mine, Chaudiere-Appalaches
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 3 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Dec 2018

A very rare Calcium Silicate mineral, Suolunite has only been found a few times at a few locations, and only at Black lake in naked eye visible crystals. Last found in a major pocket in 1990, it occasionally forms these rounded crystal clusters. This specimen has two discrete crystal "globs" on a Talc matrix, these can resemble curved Prehnite crystals and were originally mistaken for that mineral. In fine condition, this is not the usual massive or botryoidal type, it is far more developed and choice for the specie.
