Babingtonite, Digdequash, New Brunswick

Here is a locality that you have not heard of before! A few years ago, a find of well crystallized babingtonite was fund in a road cut here. The babingtonite crystals are excellent and associated sometimes with prehnite, pyrite and/or epidote. The best Babingtonite ever found in Canada!
