Apophyllite With Stilbite
Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 17.9 x 13.2 x 10.3 cm
A very showy combination specimen featuring a SPRAY of GEMMY, GLASSY, mint-green apophyllites to 2.2 cm leaping out as accent atop an off-white colored cluster of stilbite bowties. The piece is big, relatively inexpensive, and very dramatic. The apophyllites all have the same unusually modified basal termination of some of the recent apophyllite finds here, differing markedly from apophyllite terminations of most other pockets in the past. No damage, complete all around - the stilbites are 100% 3-dimensional and complete around their terminations which hang off either end!
