Apophyllite-(Kf), Stilbite-Ca, Calcite
Pune District (Poonah District), Maharashtra, India
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 4.2 x 3.9 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn
As you can see, this is NOT your average Poona combo piece, which is why it found its way into the Marty Zinn collection. What makes it so unusual is that the specimen is anchored by a translucent, light golden-yellow calcite crystal, with a "Rudniy" look about it. On the calcite have formed both blocky light green apophyllites and "books" of pearly stilbite.
