Item Description

An unusually large, 1.3 cm, sharp and well-formed, brick-red-brown, eudialyte crystal is jauntily set on matrix on this excellent and uncommon specimen from this noted Quebec locale. The crystal is SUPERB in form and sharpness, a level of quality rarely seen in the species. It is pseudo-triangular in appearance. Matrix associations include aegirine, analcime and numerous small catapleiite crystals. Ex Schlichter Collection and valued at $750-1000. I have only seen such quality in a few private and museum collctions
