Tuesday's Disappointment!

Content image: Tuesday's Disappointment!

The other day I was checking through some minerals from last year's fluorite find at Shannapheasteen in the Irish Republic.

Within the base of some quartz crystals were some small 2mm clear to white flat crystals. These were isolated and well dispersed within the specimen.

For a while I was scratching my head hoping this might be something different to the most likely option of albite.

Sadly like most strange things that turn up, it was just albite. On the plus side it is a new mineral for the locality list!

You can't win them all.
