Three perfect 'bow-tie' crystal groups of Stilbite rising up off the matrix. Stilbite bow-ties are ususally found flat on the matrix and to have 3 isolated groups that stand up on end like this creates a striking specimen. Undamaged.

Large flat specimen of ironstone loaded with crystals of blue Lazulite, tan Siderite, and white Apatite. Most specimens from this locality (which is now closed) only have crystals of Lazulite and Siderite which make them darker in appearance. The numerous white Apatites lighten up this specimen, along with the well dispersed, isolated Lazulites. This was far and away the very best of a large lot of Lazulite  specimens I obtained during a trip to Canada 20 years ago. Colorful, high quality specimen, especially for such large size.
