Heulandite, Apophyllite
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 20.0 x 13.5 x 10.8 cm
This incredible specimen features a 10 cm (4 inch!), semitranslucent, doubly-terminated, pristine, perfectly formed, elgantly curved, lustrous-as-hell, heulandite crystal. I consider it one of the finest examples of the species. Others at the show to whom I showed it to, agreed. It is certainly the best there is from India for this style and habit, at the very least. I just cannot rave enough. Steve bought it directly from India and had it trimmed. Frankly, I thought he should have kept it as he still has a great Indian zeolites collection to this day - but its just big and a bit unwieldy admist generally smaller specimens and so it is going... 20 x 13.5 x 10.8 cm
