The Ancylite is the rosy pink colored material. The pictures are taken under incandescent lighting, under which, the Ancylite appears this color. Under other forms of lighting, including natural sunlight, fluorescent and LED, the Ancylite appears as a dull gray. Calcioancylite may also be present; the two species are often found together and are indistinguishable without analysis. The black bladed crystals are Aegirine. Also present are blocky crystals with a square cross section which are unidentified.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
