Analcime with Aegirine etc.
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
4.8 x 4.8 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
A complete, glassy "golfball" Analcime crystal that is studded with several Aegirine crystals and related minerals. Classic specimen and a fine display piece, this is complete on all sides and undamaged. The faces are sharp and translucent with bright luster. Mont St. Hillaire was for many years one of the few localities that was accessible to collectors and exposed many rarities and best of species. Those days are gone but specimens of this sort are the legacy of a great locale.
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.
Two generations of sharp and gemmy Analcime crystals in perfect condition. Ex Terry Szenics collection, these crystals range from colorless white to light pink, all have glasslike luster. There is no matrix at all, this is simply a mass of Analcime crystals in all sizes packed together. Unusual and attractive
