Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.1 x 3.0 cm
This is one of the most exceptional apophyllite minis I have seen in a long time. The sharply terminated crystal is clear at the top, with a chocolate-colored phantom inside, grading to the classic green as it goes down inside. This crystal has a jewel-like clarity and sharpness. Cutting right across its center is a doubly-terminated stilbite bowtie. I know some people look at this and think its too darned pricey but really, its unique and extremely fine! 4.5 x 3.1 x 3.0 cm
