Acicular agregate of translucent striated crystals of pinkish vinogradovite in natrolite veinlet between crystals of red eudialyte. Eudialyte partialy replaced by creamy platelets of catapleiite, forming the net along fissures and around margins of eudialyte crystal. Vinogradovite overgrow glassy partially damaged natrolite crystals in the cavity. White rhombohedrons of chabazite-Na overgrow vinogradovite prismes and grov in cavities of eudialyte. FOV is ~6x4 mm. Selfcollected in June of 1994. Pavel M. Kartashov collection and photo.
