Wedge-Shaped Arfvedsonite Crystal
Wedge-Shaped Arfvedsonite Crystal from Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville County, Quebec, Canada
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description Very attractive prismatic Arfvedsonite crystal with excellent striations, very good luster, and a very unusual wedge habit. Most Arfvedsonites form long prismatic crystals, but this crystal is clearly shortened along the C-axis, creating what appears to be a flattened rhomb. Intergrown are several small crystals with the normal long habit. An excellent and unusual specimen for the species, and attractive in its own right. ex. Wendell E. Wilson.
Locality Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville County, Quebec, Canada
Dimensions 1.6 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm.
Specimen Grade B
