Description:A beautiful, classic, very lustrous, pearly, gorgeous pink color, gemmy, doubly-terminated, "bow tie"-shaped Heulandite crystal group associated with sparkling stalactitic Chalcedony from the famous Jalgaon District. I can see a few small bladed pale pinkish colored Stilbite crystals on the piece as well for a nice touch. The piece is in great shape overall and the displayability leaves nothing to be desired from an aesthetic standpoint. Indian Zeolites may still be fairly common on the market, but people lose sight of fact that they are incredibly colorful, attractive, highly displayable and many of them are truly the finest examples of their respective species ever found ! From the collection of Robert Nowakowski (# RN250) with a label from noted collector and dealer Joseph Freilich.
