Heulandite

Heulandite

Named in honor of John Henry Heuland, an English mineral collector and dealer. Heulandite actually consists of several types which are Heulandite-Ba, -Ca, -K, -Na, and –Sr. The Heulandites are relatively common as a whole and occur in basalt cavities, in weathered andesite and diabase, and as a devitrification product of volcanic glasses and tuffs. It can be found as fine specimens from Iceland, on the Faeroe Islands, Scotland, Switzerland, the United States, Canada, Brazil, India, and Australia among many others.
