Scolecite, Apophyllite, Stilbite
Nasik District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 17.0 x 12.6 x 7.1 cm
A striking combination piece! I have seen SO MANY Indian zeolites, but none with such a combination and aesthetics, for scolecite on matrix. The scolecite is 12 cm, or about 5 inches. The splaying scolecite cluster is flanked and accented near its tip by a 2-inch (5cm) cubic apophyllite. The tips of the small extending scolecites are intact. The tips of some of the large scolecites are damaged and broken off, but this is not visible from the front and it is such a striking specimen overall, that I bought it anyhow (and the price is cheap, accordingly!). Comes with custom lucite base for display. 17.0 x 12.6 x 7.1 cm
