Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 5.5 x 5.1 cm
Pune District (Poonah District), Maharashtra, India
Ex. Martin Zinn
There are plenty of apophyllite specimens out there, so the really special aesthetics of this piece probably what explains why this was in the collection of Marty Zinn: the unusual matrix, and the very attractive way the crystals are perched on them - which is really different from your average Poona apophyllite. These blocky, translucent crystals measure to just over 2.5 cm, and are all complete, terminated and undamaged.
