Castelgomberto, Vicenza Province, Veneto, Italy

Largest Crystal Size: 11 mm

This specimen has been extracted from a larger piece. Some crystal scraps from the original rock has been dissolved in a solution of hydrochloric acid. Due to the red color observed during the flame test, I assume the presence of a significant amount of strontium.

Piovene Rocchette, Vicenza Province, Veneto, Italy

Dimensions: 21 mm x 22 mm x 19 mm

This specimen has been found in a restaurant's yard composed by white limestone pebbles, hence the origin is unknow. By the fact there were other analouge pieces hosted in the limestone it seems reasonable that it was the original hostrock.

This 1 mm thick specimen has been obtained removing the inner calcite of the bedrock. In order to preserve the brittle crust a mixture of glue and ceramic powder has been applied on the outer side of the sample prior to the acid bath. Now the mixture is the only reason why this sample is not just red dust.
