Extremely lustrous, vitreous, large heulandite crystals from this old classic locale. Specimens from here were some of the earliest and most desired zeolite species known to science, and were important classics in any collection of the 1800s and early 1900s. They are rarely seen today, and in any case Indian specimens of the same species are now available in overall larger size and with some color. But the look and style is a little different and the matrix is recognizable, on these old classics. The largest crystals here are about 2.5 cm across. Joe Budd Photos
