This piece is really a cluster of catapleiite, natrolite and a couple of aegirine crystals held together by calcite. The catapleiite crystals are colourless, gemmy and very well formed pseudo-hexagonal crystals. Most of the crystals are in the recess between natrolite crystals and difficult to get at with the lens but I've tried to show a couple of the exposed ones. What a great mineral!
