A CLASSIC, OLD-TIME specimen of lustrous, pearlescent harmotome crystals to 1.0 cm on matrix from the Bellsgrove Mine at Strontian, Scotland. Harmotome is a rare zeolite group mineral and many of the crystals are cyclic twins. A fine, showy piece. Valued at??? Hard to say. New ones came out recently in the late 90s but the older ones, to my mind, are better. This one, I'd say $300. Ex Jamie Bird Collection, a California collector from the 1960s-1980s.
