One of the Maritime Provinces, Nova Scotia is a peninsula 55,284 square kilometres in area, including Cape Breton Island. Nova Scotia has an extensive shoreline, numerous lakes, and is heavily forested.

Documented mineral exploration dates back several hundred years to the first European explorers. Earlier, the native population made use of jasper and copper. Nova Scotia had extensive mining industries for coal, gypsum, iron, manganese, and gold. More recently barite, celestite, cassiterite, lead/zinc, and halite mines were operated or continue to operate. Gypsum also continues to be mined.

For collectors, Nova Scotia is most famous for the zeolites along the Bay of Fundy. These were especially celebrated through the 1800s and early 1900s before the countless deposits of India were discovered.

Nova Scotia is the type locality for five minerals. The provincial mineral is stilbite and the provincial gemstone is agate, both abundant along the Bay of Fundy.

'Parisite'
Description: Interesting brown-cream colored prismatic crystals with excellent cleavage are parisite, a cerium carbonate mineral. Actually, recent microprobe tests have shown that the central parts of the crystals are parisite and the rinds are a cerium phosphate. More identification work is being carried out. These crystals are generally about 5 mm or less, but have been found to about 1 cm. Rarely they will have a dusting of extremely tiny pyrites. Note the undulating growth along the prism and the fat midsection of the rear crystal. http://nsminerals.atspace.com/EastKemp.html
