This Apophyllite hand specimen consists of dozens of small crystals that rest on a sparse basalt base. These crystals range in length from a few millimeters up to nearly 1" (2.5 cm) in length and are generally in good condition, as only a small number are damaged or cleaved. All have excellent tetragonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges, clean faces, and well-formed pyramidal terminations that are often truncated by small basal faces. They are colorless and transparent, and possess the standard bright pearly luster. They are accompanied by several stilbite blades, most of which are damaged and incomplete.
