Gyrolite, Laumontite, Okenite & Apophyllite
    Mumbai (Bombay), Mumbai District (Bombay District)

    This conglomerate of minerals is truly something to behold. Present here is a large cabinet sized plate containing examples of Gyrolite, Laumontite, Okenite and Apophyllite. There are a handful of tiny well-formed light pink Apophyllite crystals along with four white fuzzy Okenite "balls." In the center, there is a large, hard to miss, Laumontite crystal measuring 3.14 inches (8 cm) long. The most obvious minerals, however, are the spherical forest green Gyrolite "balls." These silicates have an interesting crystal habit forming spheres in various sizes. There are ten larger and much more pronounced spheres, surrounded by some approximately 100 smaller spherical Gyrolite crystals across the entire assemblage. The largest sphere measures 0.98 inches (2.5 cm) in diameter. This mineral plate is in excellent condition, and it sits snuggly in a custom acrylic base, making installation into any lucky mineral collector's cabinet simple and easy.
    Overall Measurements: 7.48 x 5.51 x 2.48 inches (19.00 x 14.00 x 6.30 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]

    Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.

    It would indeed have been much simpler to work with a local auction house, and we had local options. But we never once regretted going with Heritage.
