There has been much written in the mineral media about these famous Disco Ball Apophyllites from the single find of late 2001. Still, today, 20-plus years later, these are unique and unequalled in the mineral world. This specimen features a very beautiful cluster standing up from undulating matrix covered with blades of sparkling white stilbite. The central cluster is 6 x 6 cm, tip to tip, and approximately 4 cm tall above the stilbite. The overall effect is simply unique and more three-dimensional in person, raising these to among the most desired and expensive examples of the species. The video conveys the shape of this, but not the full impact. For an excellent article (perhaps the best yet) on this discovery, you can read this article by friends of ours:
