Heulandite Included By Celadonite
Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 10.8 x 9.2 x 7.7 cm
Rising majestically from whitish-green matrix are a series of large heulandite crystals to 4.5 cm across. These have been heavily invested by celadonite in an unusual dark green color. This is a truly dramatic specimen as most are not associated with good matrix and this one is not only associated, but starkly perched upon a well-trimmed matrix. It is actually elegant, instead of clunky as you would have expected of the material from past experience!
