ID: CC16911
Croft quarry on the outskirts of Leicester is well known for its fine Analcime crystals.  This specimen is an interesting and unusual variant in that the two 1.5 x 1.5 cm equant Analcime crystals have a very dark chocolate-brown coating, as have the dozens of tiny (1 to 2 mm) crystals covering the greenish volcanic matrix.  One of the large Analcimes has a pinhead-size chip on one crystal edge, but this does reveal the true glassy Analcime lustre.  A fine Analcime from Croft quarry.
