27453: Natrolite 
Millington Quarry, Bernards Township, Somerset County, New Jersey
Small cabinet - 6.4 x 4.8 x 3.3 cm (2.5 x 1.9 x 1.3 inches)
ex Angela Cannon collection
Specimen status: Sold

A scrap of dark basalt matrix hosts a jackstraw spray of opaque, snow-white natrolite crystals. These crystals reach 2.4 cm in length and many are terminated. Other than the usual edge issues free of damage. This fine New Jersey natrolite displays quite nicely from several angles without needing a stand.
