Gyrolite, Quartz, Calcite
Cabinet, 13.9 x 9.8 x 5.8 cm
Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India
This is a nifty Indian combo specimen. On a matrix of basalt, drusy, white, quartz formed first followed by gray spheres of calcite, to 1.75 cm across, then glassy, colorless, quartz, to 2.5 cm in length, and lastly, balls of white gyrolite, to 3.25 cm across. The gyrolite has a matte luster with superb translucence. Rarely do you see such large aggregates of this species, and so it is significant as well as nice for the display qualities.
