This is a magnified view of a small vug. Field of View is 20mm x 15mm. The Aegerine appears as balls of green needles in the center. They are perched on an base of microcline crystals resembling white plates. To the right is a rose colored eudialyte. There is also a clear crystal which I think is natrolite, but am not certain at this point.
