Minerals from the CCRI Rock and Mineral Show!

Last Updated: 4th Nov 2016

By Kyle Perez

These specimens were purchased by me from the Community of Rhode Island's Rhode Island Mineral Hunters Rock, Fossil, and Mineral Show. There were about 20 vendors dealing with minerals that are found all over the globe, from Russia, to the USA. Out of all the specimens there, these five minerals caught my eye and I knew that the minute I saw them, I had to purchase them and add them to my collection of rocks and minerals!

This is a great specimen of Heulandite, Stilbite, and Apophyllite. Orange stilbite sits on the white heulandite base. A gorgeous water clear doubly terminated Apophyllite crystal sits on the heulandite matrix. There are many glassy Apophyllites present throughout this specimen. I acquired this specimen from the Community College of Rhode Island rock and mineral show on October 29, 2016.

This is an amazing specimen of Chalcedony and Stilbite! Deep orange Stilbite crystals are penetrating the glittery chalcedony. Another specimen I got from the CCRI Mineral Show.

This specimen is one of the best minerals I got from India. This gorgeous specimen consists of a light green Prehnite base. Small Gyrolite gray balls are scattered throughout the specimen. White tufts of okenite balls are present and there are numerous amounts of them all over this piece. Many glassy Apophyllite rectangular prisms adds a delightful finish to this awesome specimen!

A beautiful specimen of Chalcedony and Apophyllite! Beautiful stalactite of Chalcedony has very glassy and clear apophyllite crystals attached to the chalcedony stalactite!

Another beautiful specimen from India! A large heulandite base has orange Stilbite and some glassy Apophyllites attached to it. A large doubly terminated crystal of Apophyllite lies in the center of the specimen.
