Item Description

I know that Indian specimens are everywhere, but you must appreciate them for what they are. They are simply some of the finest crystallized examples of their respective species extant. This piece is actually from a find from nearly 20 years ago, and came from the collection of Brian Kosnar. It features sharp, rather lustrous, blocky, translucent, colorless/light green color crystals of Apophyllite with minor Chalcedony stalactites. It's an aesthetic miniature size piece, and will probably end up being a great bargain for somebody. One day (eventually) India will not produce any more of these Zeolites, and they will more than likely receive great recognition for being the amazing display specimens that they are.
