"Third Find" Wollastonite (Wollastonite, Barite, Calcite) Franklin, Sussex Co., New Jersey, USA


Here is a cabinet-sized "Third Find" Wollastonite from my collection. Notice the cream colored Barite embedded in the Calcite which is tending more toward a pink/red than we normally see in most of the orange/red material from the area. The nice bright orange Wollastonite crystals are spread throughout.
