Ex. Steve Pullman


Specimens from this location are seldom available. All of these specimens were found in the same flat in the Pullman collection and represent a suite of species available from the mine. The Laumontite is very fragile and friable; small pieces tend to fall off because of this. The Calcite specimen was part of a much larger piece but with the deterioration of the Laumontite has fallen into many, small pieces, this listed being one of the best. The two UV photos were both taken under SW.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: The two ore samples are massive. The Laumontite on the other two specimens is fragile and small pieces come off when handled. Only in recessed areas are the Stilbite crystals complete. The surfaces of the Calcite are cleavage planes.
