Aegirine: NaFe3+Si2O6

Forming impressive crystals that have become classics among collectors.  These tall opaque monument like crystals that jut majestically out from their host rocks are simply splendid.  Named after the Norse God of the Sea Aegir.  Aegirine is difficult to distinguish from its close cousin Augite.  Under normal circumstances, the steep pyramids of Aegirine are the only point of differentiation.

Albite: Na(AlSi3O8)

Albite is the last of the feldspars to crystallize from molten rock.  The process of crystallization from a molten rock body serves to isolate rarer elements in the last stages of crystallization and therefore produces rare mineral species.  Albite is often found with lovely rare and beautiful minerals.  Although usually not an exceptional collection mineral in itself, albite can be a nice accessory mineral to other mineral species.
