ID: CC28727
A small and fine cabinet specimen of Sabinaite with Siderite, Analcime and Aegirine on a matrix of snow-white Albite.  Just one glance tells you this is from Mont Saint-Hilaire, close to Montréal in Québec, Canada, one of the world’s most prolific mineral localities with now over 430 recognised species and type locality to 71 (yes, 71!!!). The Sabinaite forms micro hexagonal plates of about 1 mm diameter and translucent tan with a glassy lustre.  These are richly scattered amongst pale biscuit tan, curved prisms of blocky Siderite, many snowy white Analcime crystals (up to 1 cm diameter) and laths of bronze and deep bottle green Aegirine.  Although minor and not recorded on the label, a small patch of an azure blue mineral is distributed in the Feldspar on its base, this is most likely Carletonite.  No specific quarry at Mont Saint Hilaire is recorded with this specimen, so now the various quarries have been amalgamated, it should be labelled as Poudrette quarry.
