RH8-KMWGmelinite, Stilbite subgroup (Na/Ca/K)6-7[Al8-9Si27-28O72] · nH2O

03205440015642871339088.jpg
Lambertville, Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, USA

Dimensions: 16.5 cm x 12 cm x 3 cm

A large plate of bright orange gmelinite crystals atop a layer of brown stilbite crystals. This Gmelinite is from the Work House Quarry in Lambertville, and is one of the larger examples from this find. It is from a one-time find in a vein in the quarry several years back. Brad Plotkin had purchased the entire find at that time. Acquired September 2016 from Eric Stanchich. Collection and photo of Hershel Friedman.

91L-51FCalcite CaCO3 , Stilbite subgroup (Na/Ca/K)6-7[Al8-9Si27-28O72] · nH2O , Pyrite FeS2

Multiple photos available
06189940015639587537007.jpg
Trap Rock Industries Moores Station Quarry, Moore, Hopewell Township, Mercer Co., New Jersey, USA

Dimensions: 6.5 cm x 6 cm x 4 cm

An exceptional cluster of "poker-chip" style calcite crystals, with large, thin crystal plate containing a peppery spray of sparkling pyrite crystals. The diabase matrix is covered by orange stilbite crystals typical of the locality, and covered by the calcite. On the side of the crystal are some clear cleavages of rhombohedral calcite. Acquired from Bryan Davis in 2014. This is multi-directional crystal; each side has something interesting to show, as refrected in both photos. Hershel Friedman collection and photos.

8MT-VK0Chalcopyrite CuFeS2 , Calcite CaCO3

03211260015610172518945.jpg
Laurel Hill, Secaucus, Hudson Co., New Jersey, USA

Dimensions: 7.5 cm x 6.5 cm x 4 cm

Golden chalcopyrite crystals associated with calcite on diabase matrix. The bright chalcopyrite crystals offer an aesthetic contrast to the white calcite. Much of the chalcopyrite from this occurrence was found in the sandstone area; this specimen is one of the few chalcopyrites I have seen from the diabase zone, as indicated by its matrix. Ex Ken Hogan, ex John Betts, ex Eric Stanchich. Contains Ken Hogan's signature Laurel Hill label as well as John Betts' label (#1052). Acquired from Eric Stanchich in July 2016. Hershel Friedman collection and photo.

QVG-RH9Quartz (Var: Chalcedony) SiO2 , Celadonite K(Mg,Fe2+)Fe3+(Si4O10)(OH)2

Wesley Hills, Town of Ramapo, Rockland Co., New York, USA

Dimensions: 9.5 cm x 9.5 cm x 3.5 cm

A dark green, opaque chalcedony, with inclusions and a surface layer of celadonite. Celadonite is fairly common at this locality filling the sides of vugs in the volcanic basalt. Some of the areas contain a brownish hue which may technically qualify it as jasper. Collected by Barry Keegan, and acquired by Hershel Friedman in 2018. Hershel Friedman collection and photo.
