Mesolite Crystals on Basalt [Museum Week]

Amongst the collections of the Hunterian Museum at Glasgow University, next to the dinosaur bones, fossils, buddha statues and egyptian artefacts, lies a collection of geological wonders and other specimens, such as this piece of mesolite with a “radiating spray of terminated crystals” on basalt, all the way from Bombay, India.

More information on the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery can be found at, as well as its supplementary Facebook Page, Flickr Group, and on Twitter.
This post is a part of Museum Week (July 20th – 26th)
