Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 5.7 x 1.0 x 0.9 cm
Ex. William Pinch

This is a very fine, doubly-terminated, green Fluorapophyllite from Jalgaon, India that looks like it was 3D printed from a computer. It is simply a textbook crystal. It's quite unique as I have seen very few of these "floaters" like this from here. The crystal has a thinner "waist" in the middle and then tapers outwardly, ever so slightly, to the perfectly terminated ends. The center is a darker, translucent, mint green and proceeds to lighten away from middle and become lighter on the ends to the gemmy tips. This lovely Fluorapophyllite is very lustrous and displays striations parallel to its length. A very attractive and "not so typical" Fluorapophyllite from India. From the collection of the late Bill Pinch, with label.
