Nasik, Maharashtra, India
Thumbnail, 2.5 x 1.8 x 2.2 cm
This is a stunning, perfect, octahedron-modified cube with super-sharp edges and corners. The color varies from a lovely green band in the center to water clear along the sides. The luster is superb, and the aesthetics are out-of-this-world as the cube sits on a small plate of matrix. A classic specimen from the classic province. OK, make fun of me for selling an apophyllite thumbnail, but GO FIND a better one! I actually sold this to the previous owner who had been looking for a suitable apoph for his tastes for years, and we trimmed it down from a small cab to create this beauty. It is symmetric and on matrix and just stands out from the crowd of "small " apophs as a great thumbnail in every way. Oh...GEMMIER and more transparent in PERSON!
