Item #10428
Apophyllite, Stilbite and Scolecite
Ahmadnagar District, Maharashtra, India

There is so much going on in this specimen, it is hard to know where to start. How about with the fact that there are three very different crystal shapes here: acicular crystals of scolecite, wheat sheaf bundles of stilbite, and prismatic apophyllite crystals. Each of these comes in its own color: green for the apophyllites, orange for the stilbites, and white for the scolecites. A very attractive arrangement! There is no damage on this piece, which measures 9.5 x 9.5 x 6.5 cm. For the serious collector.

The wonderful terminations on the chunky green apophyllites contrast well with the flat silky orange stilbites. The spray of white scolecite can be positioned in front or back.
