Seven Apophyllite crystals rest on this Indian specimen, amidst a bed of tiny stilbite crystals. These crystals range in size from 0.2 - 1.5"(0.5 - 3.8 cm) and are a pale green color. Two of them are worthy of note, as they are both large and have excellent transparence and form. They occur in a tetragonal prismatic form that is common for Apophyllite, and have four-sided, pyramidal terminations, which is quite uncommon for the mineral when it has the green color. These terminations are tipped by tiny basal faces, and their clarity is magnificent! One of these crystals is quite large, measuring about 1.5 x 0.5 x 0.5"(3.8 x 1.3 x 1.3 cm), and the other measures approximately 0.9 x 0.2 x 0.2"(2.3 x 0.5 x 0.5 cm). All of these rest on a bed of almost-microscopic white stilbite crystals that envelop thin branches of basalt that is possibly stalactitic. These are some of the finest Apophyllite crystals that I have seen.
