Thomsonite, Stilbite
Miniature, 7.3 x 4.4 x 3.2 cm
Aurangabad District, Maharashtra, India
There has recently been some new finds of the relatively rare Zeolite species Thomsonite in India. Most people are probably familiar with the rather smooth spheres that came on the black basalt matrix last year. This is a great association specimen from the same locality featuring a great, large sphere of Thomsonite measuring 3.2 cm sitting on half of a "bow tie" of lustrous, pink Stilbite. A beautiful association piece of one of the rarer Zeolite species out there. 7.3 x 4.4 x 3.2cm
