Catapleiite and Aegirine
stock #17.1-AX16-497
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
7.4 x 2.8 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $2400
Pre Holiday 2017

A fine sculptural cluster of big (over 2.5 CM) Catapleiite crystals in rosettes are well placed on contrasting Aegirine crystals. Mont St Hillaire Catapleiites are considered the best ever found, although the Lovozero find was also world class, these had a sharp glasslike form unequaled. This is one of the most desirable St Hillaire species, and this is a far above average quality specimen. Well composed with several rosettes, all well formed and lustrous. A modern classic, these are very hard to get in this larger size and sharp quality. These are now almost never available like this.
