Apophyllite with Stilbite
    Jalgaon District

    It is generally conceded tha the best Zeolite specimens comes from India, and this is way better than most. A mixed cluster of Apophyllite and Stilbite from Jalgaon, the chief attraction of this piece is the enormous Apophyllite which towers over the rest of the group. It measures 3.5 x 1.5 x 1.33 inches (9 x 3.8 x 3.4 cm) and exhibits a light yellow-green hue in the center, fading to colorless at the termination. Associated with the Apophyllite are numerous Stilbite "bowties" of pale salmon-pink color. Smaller, "tooth-like" pyramids of Apophyllite festoon the entire assemblage with accents of mirror-bright luster. The group looks great from any direction, and the condition is excellent, with only very minor nicks. It comes with a custom base.
    Overall Measurements: 6.7 x 4.0 x 3.5 inches (17.1 x 10.1 x 8.8 cm)

    Provenance: Ex. J. Mark Fisher Collection
