The Yates Mine, near Otter Lake was a prolific producer of "Grenville" mineral specimens for many decades. It has been closed now for 10 or so years. This is an interesting specimen from there andis a plate of pyroxene crystals with a number of well formed marialite crystals poking out here and there. As well, the marialite is a bright fluorescent red, as you can see from the photo's. Nice!
