Impossible to be sure without a proper analysis Volker.
Anyway, it looks to me more like a member of the Wollastonite Group (Tremolite or Wollastonite) than a Pectolite

Hello Jordi, thank you for your idea. I will see if I can get an analysis at our university (as soon as I am allowed to go there due to the actual restrictions). I will let you know about the result.

I agree with Jordi, but, in any case, doing some analytical work would be justified.

As an additional information (I checked my old notices now): The white crystals/crystal fans are filling narrow joints in a rhyolite. No other mineralization could be found there.

So, I will try to get an analysis.

Thank you both.

When I blow up the image, I see what looks like purple quartz in the lower portion of the sample. Is that real, or is it my imagination playing tricks?

After nearly 2 months I got the result of an XRD analysis. It is laumontite, and the purple parts are fluorite (as I already assumed).

Best wishes and a good health,
Volkmar
