Heulandite, Quartz
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Small Cabinet, 8.8 x 6.4 x 6.0 cm
A STRIKING and very UNUSUAL specimen of radial sprays of highly lustrous red-brown heulandite capped by colorless heulandite on chlorite-included quartz on basalt matrix from Jalgaon, India. Red heulandite is seldom available. This is a TRULY OUTSTANDING PIECE from a collection we just got in. It is THAT nice and is of course among the rarer pieces in an Indian suite. I cannot believe, either, that I am going on and on about an Indian zeolite but to my mind it is the best piece in the auction, so there you are. 8.8 x 6.4 x 6.0 cm
