Edingtonite on Prehnite (found 1997)

Edingtonite is a hydrous barium aluminosilicate, specifically a member of the zeolite group (Coombs et al., 1997). The mineral name honors James Edington (1787-1844), Scottish mineral collector who discovered the species (Haidinger & Turner, 1825).

Edingtonite forms white crystals to 4 mm on light green prehnite. The matrix is basalt. From the collection of E.R. Laskowski (1949-2020), a mining engineer who retired to Tucson, Arizona. An accompanying label indicates the specimen was found September 14, 1997 by George Wm. Fletcher.
