Fluorapophyllite and Powellite
Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 5.9 x 5.3 x 3.0 cm
An unusual association piece! Nestled among colorless, gemmy fluorapophyllite crystals are several tan, bi-pyramidal powellite crystals. Both species are very lustrous. The largest fl-apophyllite crystal is 2 cm and the largest powellite is 1.5 cm. Powellite, which forms a series with scheelite, is calcium molybdate, and reaches its zenith in India.
