Small cabinet - 8.9 x 7.3 x 5.8 cm (3.5 x 2.9 x 2.3 inches)

This specimen consists mostly of opaque, snow white stilbite blades with minimal matrix. The largest individual stilbite blade is about 3.3 cm long. Minor, colorless calcite rhombs to about 1 cm also present. Good example for this zeolite species for this locality known more for gold than for zeolites. Displays well without needing a stand. Except for the usual edge issues, no significant damage is seen.
