Description

HEULANDITE ON CHALCEDONY
Jalgaon District, Maharashtra, India


When giant gas bubbles in lava flows start to cool and solidify, sometimes the last stage before complete solidification involves 'lava-cicles' slowly dripping from the ceiling and a few freezing into forms reminiscent of coral branches or antlers. Cooler fluids later deposited microcrystals of Calcite and last in the sequence was the crystallization of the colorless, warped Heulandite prisms with a fine pearlescent luster. The specimen is in excellent condition for something that looks like Godzilla as a hockey goalie. It is accompanied by a custom acrylic base.
Overall Measurements: 5.82 x 2.0 x 2.63 inches (14.8 x 5.8 x 6.7 cm)
Offered at no reserve.

Provenance: Mountain Minerals International [Hoppel #D1298]
