Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 15.5 x 10.4 x 8.5 cm
A fine, mounded, combination specimen from recent finds at Jalgaon, India. This specimen is capped by a 7.7 x 6.0 cm, double bowtie of pearlescent, pastel peach-pink stilbite blades. Gem-like, very glassy, blocky, pastel-green to colorless apophyllite crystals to 5.3 cm with modified corners and more stilbite crystals comprise the rest of this striking specimen. Some of the apophyllite crystal faces are beautifully striated, which is an excellent accent. Ex. George Feist Collection.
