An attractive salmon pink group of chabazite cystals perched atop quartz psm pectolite with single quartz crystal highlights. These were acquired from a retired quarry worker in the early 1980's from this defunct locality.

This type of material is very seldom seen and would be a worthy addition to any locality collection.
