RM3054   Chabazite-Ca

Rübenkeller, Nidda, Wetteraukreis, Darmstadt, Hesse, Germany

Rübenkeller is the famous historical locality for chabazite and phillipsite from about 1850 and was very prolific in zeolite specimens in the late 19th century. In this specimen, from the Freiburg Bergakademie, we can see various aggregates of very well defined, pseudocubic, transparent and very bright crystals, which fill the vacuoles of the volcanic rock. It is accompanied by a very interesting old handwritten label.


Size: 5.6 x 4.4 x 2.7 cm.
Main crystal: 3 mm.
Found in ±1880.
