Mineral Specimen #5340    Fluorescent Calcite on Analcime

Croft Quarry, Croft, Leicestershire, England

9 x 6.5 x 4.5 cm
Analcime crystals up to 1 cm across.


Ex. H. R. McBroom from trade with Sam Weller, 1983

This specimen is covered with well formed Analcime crystals with smooth faces with a high glossy luster. Good Analcime specimens from England are seldom available. The Analcime crystals are clear to slightly off white in color with a few of the smaller crystals having a red/brown/orange color due to likely inclusion of Goethite. There are small, white, opaque Calcite crystals scattered over the surface of the specimen which fluoresce a red/orange color under SW UV.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
