Description

    Stilbite & Apophyllite
    Jalgaon District
    Maharashtra
    India
    9.06 x 6.10 x 5.31 inches (23.00 x 15.50 x 13.50 cm)


    This piece consists predominantly of large and well-formed salmon pink Stilbite crystals which exhibit the sought after shiny, pearly luster desirable from this member of the Zeolite family of minerals. Blossoming out of the Stilbite crystals are hundreds of sharp lustrous clear and creamy white Apophyllite crystals. Strips and pockets of glistening gray and purple Chalcedony matrix are present with even more tiny, well-formed and clear Apophyllite crystals. This beautiful cabinet sized specimen is in excellent condition, with only a few nicks to some of the periphery crystals. There is no doubt this piece would make a statement in most any display cabinet.
    Offered at no reserve.
