Utskalahamar, Hvalfjaroareyri (Hvaleyri), Hvalfjorour, Capitol Region, Iceland
An unusual crystal form for stilbite, this piece shows tiny doubly terminated flat crystals that appear almost pseudo cubic. They are packed together but are not coalescing as each individual crystal outline can be seen. This piece was collected by Mr. Siguden Jonsson in 1986 and represents a rare piece from there. The crystals have formed within a vesicle of basalt, which creates its matrix.
