Mineralpedia Details for Sabinaite
Named for a mineralogist at the Geological Survey of Canada who played a pivotal role in the characterization of the mineral, Ann Phyllis Sabina Stenson. It can be found only in the Francon quarry in Montréal, Sabinaite’s type locality, and the Poudrette quarry at Mont Saint-Hilaire in Québec, Canada. Sabinaite occurs in vugs in silicocarbonatite sills at the Francon quarry and in cavities in a sodalite syenite in a gabbro-syenite complex at Mont Saint-Hilaire.
