Here is a specimen of the rare mineral babingtonite, from the Lane Quarry in Westfield, Massachusetts. Babingtonite is the Massachusetts state mineral. The crystals are sharply formed and are colored a lustrous jet black and are set in and on a matrix of bladed white barite (uncommon at this locality) along with sharp calcite crystals, all on a thin layer of basalt. The dramatic contrast helps make this is a great display specimen.
