Eirikite, Leifite, Catapleiite

Item number: 22968

The main feature of this specimen is the large sprays of white, acicular eirikite-leifite crystals in a matrix composed of polylithionite, natrolite crystals, sharp, 3-4mm platy catapleiite crystals plus albite and rhodochrosite crystals. These kind of sprays of eirikite-leifite seem to always contain both minerals which phase in and out of each other.
