TX14AL2: A novelty at Tucson 2020. Group of three doubly terminated Tremolite crystals, with very well defined faces and edges. The crystals, with a little white Dolomite matrix, have an intense luster between vitreous and silky, are much more transparent than usual in specimens from this area and are green-gray with bluish tints. From a very recent find, the quality is superior to that generally known in the St. Lawrence County area.

Specimen size: 1.6 × 1.4 × 0.8 cm = 0.63” × 0.55” × 0.31”

Tremolite crystal, on a Dolomite matrix, with very well defined faces and edges, with a polycrystalline termination, an intense luster between vitreous and silky, translucent, but with greater transparency than usual in specimens from this area and of green-gray color with bluish tints. From a very recent find, the quality is superior to that generally known in the St. Lawrence County area.

TB88AL2: A novelty at Tucson 2019. Spherulitic growths and felted aggregates of Shattuckite, with an intense deep color and encompassed in small Quartz crystals that protect them.
