Stilbite on Quartz


I’m generally not a big fan of most Zeolites, mainly because they’re overabundant and usually of poor quality. But I discovered a handful that I couldn’t look the other way and picked them up. These Stilbites are perfectly formed, translucent with a beautiful pearl luster. This particular piece is world class – it’s beautiful and nicely balanced with a single Stilbite crystal centered on top, and considering the aesthetics, color, luster and condition – it’s as close to perfect as there is.
