Detailed Mineral List:

Andradite
Formula: Ca3Fe3+2(SiO4)3
Reference: [www.johnbetts-fineminerals.com]
Clinozoisite
Formula: {Ca2}{Al3}(Si2O7)(SiO4)O(OH)
Habit: radial to fan-like aggregates of prismatic crystals, often frozen in Quartz
Colour: Bright pink to red
Description: Much of this material was collected in the 1960's to 1970's. The bright pink radial sprays make for visually impressive specimens, and examples are not uncommonly still available from time-to-time in the minerals dealer market. (ROM 4/25/2005)

Epidote
Formula: {Ca2}{Al2Fe3+}(Si2O7)(SiO4)O(OH)
Reference: Richard Dale Collection
Quartz
Formula: SiO2
