Mont Saint-Hilaire, Analcime, Burbankite

These are the weirdest analcime crystals that I've ever seen! They are all extremely elongated and all have one or two tiny, sharp burbankite crystals on them. I do not know what causes this extreme elongation. Very interesting!

  • A couple of elongated, oddly shaped analcime crystals are crossed on this matrix of analcime. A nice burbankite crystal on the side.
