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.
