Chalcedony from CCRI Mineral Show!

Last Updated: 4th Nov 2016

By Kyle Perez

A beautiful specimen of Chalcedony and Stilbite. Deep orange color Stilbite penetrate into the glittery chalcedony. It is from Nasik, India. I acquired this specimen from the Community College of Rhode Island's RI Mineral hunters rock, fossil, and Mineral Show! Very nice specimen from this famous locality!

I do not think that this is chalcedony, but quartz. As far as I know, chalcedony never shows crystal faces like in your picture.

The orange is Stilbite and the grayish is chalcedony.
