Baptiste Lake area, Herschel Township, Hastings Co., Ontario, Canada

Dimensions: 5.7 cm x 5.2 cm x 4.9 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 5.7 cm

Based on SEM analysis which they examined (see child photo) and visual inspection, both Michel Picard (recently retired curator at the Canadian Museum of Nature) and Dr. Douglas Scott, mineralogist very familiar with SEM spectra, confirm this specimen to be meionite. Michel related to me that all the meionite specimens in the CMN collection were confirmed by SEM analysis and that the ratios of my specimen were in keeping with those at the museum.
My specimens were collected in a calcium-rich skarn which adds to the evidence.

Personally collected October 2016.
