Item Description

A very aesthetic and sculptural combination plate from Jalgaon featuring a gorgeous, lustrous, translucent, pale pinkish-red colored group of Heulandite-(Ca) blades associated with lovely soft peach colored groups of sharp, lustrous Stilbite-(Ca) sitting atop a Chalcedony-coated thin plate of basalt. The largest Heulandite group measures 8.3 cm across and the largest Stilbite measures 6.9 cm. No real damage that I can see, and this combination of Heulandite and Stilbite is iconic for Jalgaon. Valued at $2,400 retail. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection. Along with amassing one of the finest private mineral collections in the world, Steve is a renowned mathematician.
