Summary

Description
English: Makatite, Zakharovite
Locality: Demix-Varennes quarry, Saint-Amable sill, Varennes & St-Amable, Lajemmerais RCM, Montérégie, Québec, Canada
FOV ~6½ x 4⅓ mm. Found Sept 2000. MOB coll.
Fibrous makatite with a hint of the “sea green” color characteristic of this find associazted with “mustard” – zakharovite.
It can be very difficult to distinguish zakharovite from “smectite group” at STA but in this case the “flake size” seems too large for the more powdery smectite. However, even under high magnification I only see a very few xls with hexagonal shape – perhaps wishful thinking.
The dark areas in the makatite are natrolite terminations trying to push through. The dark spots in the “mustard” are something else. Close inspection shows rounded red/brown blobs. I don’t know what they are.
This material is from a hydrothermalite with (relatively) abundant varennesite
