Collection: Goosecreekite

Goosecreekite is one of the rarer zeolites and one of the most unusually named minerals in the world. It is named after the quarry from where it was first described, Luck Goose Creek Quarry in Loudon Co., Virginia. It forms irregular aggregates and prismatic crystals that are found in the vesicles or bubbles of volcanic rock as are most other zeolites. Goosecreekite is a rare mineral and is sought after by collectors of rare zeolite minerals. Zeolites are known to have an openness about their structure that allows large ions and molecules to reside and actually move around inside the overall framework. City of Nashik (India) have deposits which have been lately explored.
