Heulandite, Quartz
Nasik District, Maharashtra, India
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.4 x 3.9 cm
A beautifully-trimmed specimen featuring a crystal "fan" of heulandite with wonderful pearly luster, displayed against a backdrop of the thin plate of quartz on which it formed. It is the trimming that makes this piece so fine, as the miner managed to get the matrix down to just the smallest amount necessary to show off this fine crystal while creating a beautiful frame for it.
