Heulandite-Ca
Formula: (Ca,Na)5(Si27Al9)O72 · 26H2O
Description: Found as zones together with heulandite-K in analyzed heulandite samples from this locality.

Heulandite-K
Formula: (K,Ca,Na)5(Si27Al9)O72 · 26H2O
Description: Found together with heulandite-Ca as zones in heulandite samples (Nordrum et al 2005). An analysis of another crystals showed a calcian heulandite-K with high content of Sr,Ba and Na. (Nordrum et al 2006) NB Both refers to the locality as Falkensten, but the samples were found at Falkenstenssvingen (K.E.Larsen pers. communication, 2010)
