Octahedral XX, max edge 0.4cm. The XX are opaque and bright, typical but not common, from this granodiorite quarry with hydrothermal veins of carbonates and fluorite-baryte mineralization. The pinkish XX, particularly clear in the 3rd photo, is laumontite that - I have been told - is common in this quarry. There are some elongated brown calcite XX with 2nd generation calcite
