Pune District (Poonah District), Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 4.2 x 3.5 x 1.7 cm
A fine and aesthetic combination specimen from one of the closed quarries at Poona, India and the Jaime Bird Collection. An upright, pearlescent, colorless stilbite bulb looks like a tree or shrub and is beautifully complimented by a lustrous, prismatic, green apophyllite crystal resting against another stilbite blade. The crystals are set on the shard of mordenite matrix.
