Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca
Nasik District, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 10.0 x 6.2 x 5.0 cm
I know that Indian Zeolite specimens are everywhere, but you must appreciate them for what they are. They are simply some of the finest crystallized examples of many of these species extant. This piece features a very good sized, sharp, lustrous, blocky green color crystal of Apophyllite with several tan Stilbite sheaves surrounding it. It's an aesthetic cabinet size piece, and will probably end up being a great bargain for somebody. One day (eventually) India will not produce any more of these Zeolites, and they will more than likely receive great recognition for being the amazing display specimens that they are.
