Goosecreekite, Apophyllite-(Kf), Quartz
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 5.6 x 2.6 cm
A superbly formed bowtie spray of the rare zeolite Goosecreekite. Most often you see well-formed Goosecreekite in radial aggregates, which are quite attractive and desireable. I have never seen the equivalent to this superb 1-inch spray, just set out on contrasting matrix so sharply. The crystals, which have a lovely and very uniform white color, also have a good luster which makes it sparkle like sugar as you move it in the light. It sits on a drusy Quartz matrix, along with numerous gemmy Apophyllites. Ex. Charlie Key Collection.
