Mont Saint-Hilaire, Gibbsite

Gibsite is not an uncommon mineral in the world as a powder or rock forming mineral. It IS rare in crystals. I've attached a red arrow to each specimen to better point out the crystal, since they are difficult to find! They are also difficult to photograph being colourless crystals against a white background! Here are some excellent examples!
