Lemoynite - Sold

Lemoynite is a hydrous sodium calcium zirconium silicate. Perrault et al. (1969) named the mineral after Charles Lemoyne (1625-1685), Lord of Longuevil, and his four sons, well-known personalities in the early days of Montréal.

Lemoynite forms radiating groups to 5 mm across in an iron-stained cavity. Good contrast. From the collection of E.R. Laskowski (1949-2020), a mining engineer who retired to Tucson, Arizona. An earlier label from the Donald Cooke collection accompanies the specimen.
