Fluorescent phlogopite and diopside - Papineau RCM, Outaouais, Quebec, Canada
Shown here is one of the best pieces of fluorescent phlogopite & diopside I found, during visits in a new occurrence with one of my partners, in October and November 2020. As mentionned in a previous post, we found lots of phlogopite and diopside, as well as a few scapolite specimens on this property. I mention only the general area and not the exact location, since we were asked not to tell other collectors the exact locality, as it is located on private land. The specimen measures 11,5 cm X 10,5 cm X 6,2 cm.
