Apophyllite in Stilbite
Pandulena Hills Quarry, near Bombay, India
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 6.6 x 2.9 cm
Ex. Bill and Liz Moller
Emanating from a wreath of lustrous, cream colored, stilbite crystals, to 3.5 cm across, is a spear shaped, pristine, and transparent, light emerald green, fluorapophyllite crystal. The length of the fluorapophyllite crystal is 6.5 cm in length and it exhibits very good luster. The termination is RAZORsharp! This is more than just a very nice combo specimen - it is truly top shelf! Despite as many as I have seen, I was blown away by this one. This is an older piece obtained some 20 years ago at the Pandulena Hills Quarry, and sold only recently from the Bill and Elizabeth Moller collection.
