Apophyllite with Heulandite
A very aesthetic piece that features a plate first coated with peach-colored microcrystalline Heulandite, and then subsequently completely covered in gemmy, transparent, Apophyllite crystals. But the focal point of the piece is the large, lustrous, pseudocubic Apophyllite crystal (2.3 cm) with modified corners and internal green zoning. There is also a smaller, similar Apophyllite crystal nearby. The focal Apophyllite crystal is pristine and contrasts with the rest of the piece beautifully. Outstanding specimen in excellent condition.
