Serandite with Aegirine, Polylithionite, Leucophanite, Analcime and Microcline

ID: CC32335
This terrific small cabinet specimen from the classic Canadian locality of Mont Saint-Hilaire is composed of creamy-white, large, blocky Microcline Feldspar crystals overgrown with crystallised salmon pink Serandite; black Aegirine plus Polylithionite, Leucophanite, Analcime.  The largest Serandite crystal measures 2 x 1.2 x 1 cm and the longest Aegirine is 1.6 cm.  Specimens from Mont Saint-Hilaire are seen less and less due to a severely restricted collecting policy.  As individual quarries have been renamed and merged during Mont Saint-Hilaire’s many years of operation, unless specifically labelled, it is recommended specimen are labelled Poudrette quarry, as this is the current name and contains all pre-existing MSH quarries; DeMix for example.
