Gmelinite

Salmon coloured crystals of gmelinite from

I was particularly pleased to see the reflected surfaces on this piece after I downloaded the photos to my photo editor.

    • We do have them mounted in acrylic display boxes which are stored in a mineral cabinet. Most of our collection are “thumbnail” sized, therefore too small for normal display around the house. However, we do have one or two larger pieces collecting dust here and there!
