Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca, Quartz
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 13.0 x 9.0 x 6.7 cm
Striking, two-toned, very glassy and lustrous, intergrown apophyllite crystals are beautifully framed by pearlescent stilbite blades on the strangely parallel-growth, drusy quartz-covered basalt matrix on this beautiful cabinet combination specimen from recent finds at Jalgaon. The intergrown, gem-like, blocky apophyllite crystals are 3.9 x 3.2 cm. One of the stilbite blades has tiny gem apophyllites on one face. Very interesting. Classic combination material from Jalgaon.
