  • This is an interesting one! The matrix appears to be siderite pseudomorphs after aegirine that have been largely encrusted with colourless-whitish albite crystals. In turn, there are lots of acicular elpidite crystals here and there plus a couple of smoky quartz crystals! The elpidite fluoresces a nice yellow-green colour and the albite a deep red. Looks great!
