- Fluorapophyllite With Stilbite
- Cabinet, 15.5 x 13.3 x 6.4 cm
- Aurangabad, Maharashtra State, India
Emplaced aesthetically on weathered basalt covered with spherical druses of quartz, is a cluster of lustrous and translucent, bicolored green fluorapophyllite crystals to 5 cm across. Several lustrous, ivory colored stilbite crystals, to 3.8 cm in length, also adorn this specimen. These crystals are, unusually, a more intense green color when viewed side-on (and those sides are extremely sharp and lustrous!) Also unusually, small white laumontite crystals are in association. From the January 2014 pocket.
