Apophyllite-(Kf), Calcite
Nasik District, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 9.4 x 8.6 x 7.7 cm
A very fine radial spray of gem-like, very glassy, pyramidal apophyllite crystals cover a cluster of lustrous, tan, blocky calcite rhombs from recent finds at Nasik, India. The dominating, large apophyllite is 4.0 cm and all of the apophyllites have water-clear terminations. All of the major apophyllites are pristine. A very aesthetic example of the combination of species and well-known locale.
