Actinolite 1
Actinolite 1 
 
Actinolite on Feldspar, Found this as a 10 year old in 1958 while spending the summer in Quebec with my grandparents. Whenever I went Smallmouth fishing at my favorite spot it rrequired about a 300 yard walk from one lake to another. On the walk back to the boat I would pick up a chunk of this material and take it back to the camp. Most of it was traded away over the years. Sure wish I had some of it back as I was told there is absolutely none left.
