Description

Before few months, there was new find of mesolite on matrix of heulandite during road cutting work in Deshgaon village of Khandwa district in Madhya Pradesh state of India. I was able to get some specimens from this find.

After analysis, it was found that ball and fine needles both are mesolite. Red / orange color to the balls is due to the inclusions of hematite.

Some calcites are associated with the specimen
