Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 6.4 x 4.1 cm
Nasik District, Maharashtra, India
Look at this extremely unusual apophyllite specimen from Nasik! Not only is the form very unusual - it would be hard to describe it from a crystallographic standpoint, even though it is quite regular and geometric - but the color is also quite different, colorless with rusty-reddish inclusions. This cluster of crystals contrasts BEAUTIFULLY with the snowy, sparkly white matrix. The large crystal measures 2.6 cm.
