Oraciones de ejemplo
  • A preliminary review of the local mineralogy was subsequently written by Endlich, who noted the presence of aragonite, chabazite, calcite, mesolite, and natrolite, in addition to ‘leucite.’
  • For example, natrolite is generally restricted to South Table Mountain, whereas the crystal habits of chabazite and thomsonite are noted to vary between several localities on North Table Mountain.
  • Although levyne has been noted to have crystallized earlier than analcime, calcite, chabazite, and thomsonite, and later than analcime, cowlesite, and chabazite, it is usually the only mineral within the cavity.

Origen
