Item Description

I know that Indian Zeolite and associated species are fairly common right now, but you must appreciate them for what they are. They are simply some of the finest crystallized examples of many of these species extant. This piece features a sharp, rather lustrous, translucent, thick, stout, blue-green to white color crystal of Apophyllite measuring 4.1 cm, which are associated with cream colored blades of Stilbite on matrix. It's a beautiful and eye-catching small cabinet 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.
