DescriptionApophyllite and Stilbite
Zoomorphic minerals are always interesting, and this example demonstrates why. Featuring impressive gem-quality "Coke bottle" green Apophyllite crystals with glassy terminations and creamy white Stilbite crystals, this mineral "snake" definitely has a serpentine air to it. The specimen is replete with numerous essentially bi-color crystals as the Apophyllites are both light green and clear adding to its overall appeal. The rock is blanketed with crystals jutting out from a volcanic matrix in all directions. This is no common example of a relatively common mineral variety and looks impressive when oriented vertically in its custom acrylic base. Zeolite enthusiasts will surely be captivated by this showy specimen.
