Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca, Quartz
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 17.7 x 10.0 x 7.4 cm
A fine large cabinet Indian specimen from recent finds at Jalgaon, India. Gemmy and lustrous, pastel-green to colorless, blocky apophyllite crystals with steep pyramidal to chisel terminations are scattered on the bowl-like basalt vug covered with sugary, drusy quartz. The isolated apophyllite on one end is 6.5 cm and is doubly terminated. A couple of pearlescent, pastel-pink stilbite blades are a very nice accent, especially the one doubly terminated stilbite embedded in the apophyllite crystal.
