  • At first glance, one would think that the crystals on this specimen are gmelinite but, in fact, it is just the equal interpenetrating twinning coupled with the bevelled faces that make it lokk that way. These are interesting, well formed, undamaged chabazite crystals with a very light pink colour and almost colourless in some parts of th ecrystals. Interesting!

  • Wasson's Bluff
  • Bay of Fundy

  • A cluster of chabazite crystals with a habit a little fifferent than normal. At first the crystals look like gmelinite but that is because the crystals are not simple rhombohedra but a combination of positive and negative rhombohedra. As well, the crystals are all penetration twins. Well mounted on an acrylic base. Nice!
