RM2560   Phacolite, chabasite var.

Gads Hill, Upper, Mersey Valley, Meander Valley, Tasmania, Australia

Colorless, vitreous and brilliant phacolite crystals covering the volcanic rock matrix. Phacolite is a variety of chabazite, with a pseudohexagonal lenticular shape, due to the twinning of several rhombohedrons. A very nice miniature from the former Trigo collection, from Mataró (Catalonia), with its handwritten label.

Size: 3.4 x 2.5 x 1.5 CM.
Found in ±1985.

Col. A. Trigo, Mataró.
