White massive mesolite with erionite epitaxially growing on levyne. Photo width 11mm.
Usually referred to as “pyrolusite”, but exact manganese oxide unknown.
Grey thomsonite balls, colourless pseudohexagonal chabazite crystals, and white tufts of gonnardite-natrolite.
Very fine transparent green tourmaline, possibly dravite or schorl.
A very unusual occurrence of faden quartz, not normally found in Tasmania. “Faden” refers to the German for thread and relates to the white thread running through the two crystals, top left to bottom right.
The specimen has very good coverage of wavellite, and interestingly some of the back areas of the specimen has wavellite in other colours, light green, and water-clear. Ex Neil Smith collection. 48x30x37mm.
