Item Description

We have all se4en innumerable Indian apophyllite specimens but this really stands out as a FABULOUS combination piece from the famous quarries in the Deccan Plateau of India. I can tell you how good and how gemmy the Fluorapophyllites are (and indeed they are), and I can tell you how attractive and well-formed the pearly Stilbites are (also true), but only the pics can even approach showing you how incredibly aesthetic this piece is. And it's even better in person! One of my favorites. Enjoy. Note this is an old style from the 1980s or 1990s, from a quarry long since paved over.
