Apophyllite with Stilbite
A very aesthetic piece that that is covered with light green Apophyllite crystals. Set among the Apophyllite crystals are numerous Stilbite crystals, several having a “bowtie” crystal formation. The pearly luster of this piece is outstanding. But wait – be sure to look at the pic of the “back” – there you will see some exposed matrix of beige-colored microcrystalline Stilbite that is an excellent contrast. I put italics around “back” because at times I’m not sure which side I’d rather display. I guess a battery powered rotating display is the answer . . . Anyways, an awesome specimen with no damage.
