Stilbite-Ca, Heulandite-Ca, Quartz
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 16.7 x 16.5 x 7.0 cm
A dramatic, large cabinet combination specimen from recent finds at Jalgaon, India. Lustrous, pearlescent, salmon-pink stilbite bowties and blades and two salmon-pink, saddle-shaped heulandite crystals richly and very aesthetically cover the curved vug lined with drusy quartz. The stilbite bowtie on the upper left is 5.1 cm and the large heulandite on the bottom-center is 5.4 cm. A few small, glassy, green apophyllite crystals scattered about are a nice accent to this impressive specimen. The stilbite blades attached to both of the heulandites are noteworthy and very pretty.
