Calcite, Stilbite-Ca, Quartz
Large Cabinet, 17.0 x 10.5 x 9.5 cm
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Two glassy and gemmy, light amber, complex calcite rhombs to 3.4 cm are very aesthetically placed in this superb large cabinet specimen from Jalgaon. These rhombs rest on a large, 4.0 cm, brown calcite rhomb partially hidden by the amber rhombs and a coating of small stilbite blades. The well-prepared, large basalt vesicle is lined with sparkly quartz crystals, with a rich sprinkling of small stilbite blades on the floor of the vug. The gemmy rhombs have excellent color, glassiness and crystal form - and are very artistically set in the natural cavity.
