    Fluorapophyllite on Prehnite
    Fairfax Quarry, Centreville, Culpeper Basin, Fairfax Co., Virginia, USA

    "A well formed light tan lustrous 4 inch apophyllite "flower" growing on a mound of prehnite covered with small apophyllite crystals. One of the best found. ?"
    - Rock H. Currier

    "One of the best found?" may be open to debate, but for sure - it is a damn fine one from a locality that has seen little or no production for many years. Many current Zeolite collectors are unaware of just how good some of the Fairfax Quarry material is. Support your local Zeolite: it isn't all about India.

    Offered at no reserve
