RM2930   Harmotome and calcite

Bellsgrove Quarry, Strontian, Fort William and Ardnamurchan, Highland, Scotland, United Kingdom

This specimen is a fine sample of harmotome from the Bellsgrove quarry in Scotland, a locality that has produced excellent pieces of this zeolite. On a calcite matrix with honey to greenish tones, several richly faceted crystals of harmotome are disposed. Between transparent and translucent, and of a remarkable size for the species. Exploitation of a notable baryte vein (Strontian Main) destroyed the Middleshop mines and was renamed as Strontian Barytes Mine, now called as Bellsgrove Quarry. It is accompanied by the seller's label.

 


Size: 8 x 4.7 x 4.7 cm
Main crystal: 10 mm.
