Thumbnail, 7.1 x 5.0 x 1.8 cm
A thin matrix of weathered basalt hosts pure white blades of stilbite to 3 cm across, complementing two emerald-green fluorapophyllite crystals to 2.25 cm in length. The color is superb! the luster is glassy! The stilbite displays a high degree of pearlescent luster and the fl-apophyllites, which have flat basal pinacoidal terminations, are gemmy and extremely lustrous. In fact, the larger fl-apophyllite is doubly terminated. 7.1 x 5 x 1.8 cm
