Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca
Nasik District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 17.2 x 11.4 x 8.4 cm
A large SHOWPIECE combo specimen from India! It features a cluster of huge, blocky apophyllite crystals, to 5.5 cm across the termination, sitting right beside a cluster of peachy bowtie stilbites. The apophyllites have crenellated terminations with a frosty color that is really pretty atop the green apophyllite. The specimen was trimmed out beautifully, closely cropped around the two minerals on just a thin shard of matrix. In fact, this matrix extends only underneath the apophyllites - the stilbites jut out freestanding into space. A big, gorgeous piece!
