Here is a plate of sharply formed datolite crystals to 1" on a thin basalt matrix.  These come from the now-closed Roncari Quarry, where I collected them many years ago.  The crystals are monoclinic prisms, with complex faces and little symmetry.  There are some bright red highlights of hematite in thin streaks across the crystals, which are slightly frosted but undamaged.
