Stilbite on Mordenite


This is a really interesting piece. The contrast really caught my eye. On one hand you have this large cluster of pristine bow-tie Stilbite crystals with a beautiful pearly luster, set atop a chalky-like matrix of Mordenite with an appearance not unlike a dried up lake bed. At first glance the stability of the matrix might be questioned, but one look at the back-pic and you’ll see that it’s held firmly together. Great piece – it’s unusual enough and more than aesthetic enough to really grab my attention – no damage.
