Zeolites, Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia, Analcime

Another great zeolite mineral that can be found in the Bay of Fundy basalts is analcime. Here are some excellent examples, many of which are from the Terry Collett Collection which I purchased a significant portion of last summer. Terry has been the most persistent and prolific of the collectors that frequent the Bay of Fundy region and, as a result, has accumulated many excellent, aesthetic, high quality minerals specimens from that unique area.
