  • A rounded aggregate of brownish stilbite (with a little nick on it) is exposed in a vug with some smaller stilbite crystals and a few white analcime trapezohedra. This is an oldy that I exchanged from an institution. The antique catalogue number is affixed to the bottom and I can attest that it was collected in the early part of last century. Displays well.

  • A pleasant specimen of stilbite exposed in a heulandite vein. The heulandite is under a carpet of sharp, well-formed laumontite crystals. The laumontite crystals are only 3mm or so and these are the kind that usually survive dehydration. Looks good!

  • Sharp, creamy, chabazite crystals line this shallow vug, across the full width of this specimen. Well formed stilbite crystals as doubly terminated prisms or divergent sprays are scattered acrtoss the chabazites. Funny how some of the crystals are single crystals and others are divergent! Wonder why? This is an excellent display piece.

  • A superb example of stilbite. The front of this specimen is largely covered by small sparkling chabazite crystals. On the chabazite are two stilbites, one a very sharp single crystal and the other a divergent group of very sharp, well terminated crystals. Excellent piece that displays very well.

  • This plate of stilbite crystal aggregates has a stilbite-coated calcite crystal just to the right of center. The stilbite has an orangey colour and the crystals are in bundles, typical of stilbite. The form of the calcite is clearly visible beneath the thin veneer of small stilbite crystals. Displays very well!

  • Flat, bladed, pearly-lustered stilbite crystals are scattered here and there on this matrix. In between the stilbite crystals are clusters of laumontite crystals up to 3mm or so. I'm sure that laumontite is dehydrated and may fall apart sometime but at this point, the crystals are excellent!
