This specimen is a polished sphere of cancrinite and other associated minerals. There appear to be three or four species present in this specimen, the cancrinite being a pinkish-orange color. One of the associated minerals is a metallic gray color-magnetite, perhaps? Given the location, I would guess that the associated minerals would conform to those found in a nepheline syenite environment. The cancrinite shows some flashes of color similar to labradorescence.
