Item Description

A beautiful, 5.3 cm, bowtie-like cluster of very gemmy and lustrous, blocky, green to colorless apophyllite crystals with pinacoidal terminations aesthetically set on a bed of lustrous, pearlescent, cream-colored stilbite blades. The periphery contacting to the apophyllites on the right side of the bowtie is barely noticeable and is certainly not a detraction.
