The chemical relationship between natrolite and scolecite is somewhat similar to that between chabazite and gmelinite, but the group appears to present an example of a different type of solid solutions, namely, that in which the two components do not form a continuous series of mixed crystals, mutual solubility being limited and the end members being of distinct crystallographic forms.28 Most of the specimens are plainly...
