Brewsterite, Olalla, Osoyoos Mining Division, British Columbia

I recently acquired a group of specimens representing most of a find of world-class brewsterite crystals. The locality at Yellow Lake is well known as one of the only localities in the world besides Strontian, Scotland where large crystals of brewsterite are found. Yellow Lake has produced only sporadically over the years. This is a great find and great opportunity to acquire really nice specimens of this relatively rare strontium-rich zeolite. There are also some small specimens from a previous find on this page.

  • A much larger than usual thick plate of colourless brewsterite crystals, tinted pink by a bit of hematite dusting. The brewsterites are sharp and associated with much smaller calcite crystals and tiny groups of goethite crystals. The specimen has a natural fissure across the top with is only in the mineralized area and does not extend into the matrix. No stability problems. Nice cabinet specimen of this rare, strontium rich zeolite mineral!
