Mineral Specimen #6243 Green Apophyllite, Stilbite
3.9 x 3.3 x 2 cm
A very beautiful miniature specimen with sprays of Apophyllite crystals which are gemmy and are an incredibly vivid green color. The color is as good as it gets for green Apophyllite from India. The Apophyllite crystals rest radiate from the juncture of white colored Stilbite crystals which have a pearly luster. There are smaller Stilbite crystals with a light peach color on the host rock. The specimen will stand upright as depicted in the second and third pictures, but is a little shaky, so a base and some tack would be advised (let me know if you want some sent with the specimen). There are few more Apophyllite crystals at the base of the specimen.
Condition: Very Good
Flaws: One of the smaller Apophyllite crystals is flat and cleaved on the end.
