Several Apophyllite crystals rest on the almost stalactitic quartz base of this specimen. The Apophyllites are in moderately good condition, as several of them are damaged or incomplete due to cleavage, but the largest one is surprisingly intact and has dimensions of 1.8 x 0.6 x 0.6" (4.6 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm). All have excellent tetragonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces. They are essentially colorless and transparent, though the larger ones are cloudy and essentially translucent along their prism lengths. They are accompanied by a few small stilbites and countless tiny quartz crystals that coat the "stalactite". A small amount of the basalt host rock is attached to this formation.
