Strontianite (Pennsylvania)

Strontianite is simple strontium carbonate, and a member of the aragonite group. Sulzer (1791) named the species after Strontian, its type locality in Scotland.

Strontianite here forms a radiating sphere, 1.7 cm in diameter, on a druse of yellow calcite. Choice for the locality. Could be trimmed into a thumbnail specimen. Carries labels from Carter Rich and Lehigh Minerals, which indicates it once resided in the Kerry Matt collection.
