Stilbite-Ca, Apophyllite-(Kf)
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 20.3 x 18.5 x 12.9 cm
A huge, intact pocket from India. What appears to look like snow here is actually thousands of tiny, slender stalactites of micro-apophyllite. Scattered amongst them are pearly, peach bowtie crystals of stilbite, measuring to 3 cm. The stilbites are perfectly spaced and balanced, and project outwards into the pocket to give the specimen a wonderful 3-dimensionality.
