Calcite, Stilbite-Ca
Cabinet, 11.1 x 6.5 x 4.2 cm
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
With all the stuff that pours out of India, I have never seen a specimen quite like this one. What you have is these really exquisite rhombs of translucent calcite with silky surfaces from tiny "cut glass" modifications on their faces - surrounded by bursts of pearly stilbites. The overall form of the specimen is just perfect, too, a curving form tilted up just right.
