Calcite, Stilbite-Ca, Apophyllite-(Kf)
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 13.8 x 7.4 x 6.2 cm
A fine Indian cabinet combination specimen from recent finds at Jalgaon. This striking piece is dominated by a large, 6.0 x 6.0 cm, gem-like, golden-amber calcite rhomb. The rhomb is beautifully perched on a column of pearlescent stilbite blades accented with a few green apophyllite crystals. The lower part of the calcite rhomb is transparent. The color is a very rich hue, not pale as usual for this material.
