Parallel orientated, elongated Scolecite crystals with small, glassy Apophyllite crystals perched on the end and one edge. The Apophyllite crystal have a subtle green tint. In the right light and angle of view, the Scolecite can be seen to be picking some this green color. The color appears to be transmitted along the Scolecite crystals similar to optical fibers. The effect is subtle and difficult to photograph.

Condition: Good

Flaws: Most of the Scolecite crystals are not terminated; however, the main, central one is terminated.
