At least 15 small Apophyllite crystals rest in a crevice in the basalt host rock of this hand specimen. These crystals do not exceed 0.5" (1.2 cm) in length and are generally in good condition- a few of the more exposed ones have been cleaved, but most are intact. Their tetragonal prismatic form is very good, and all have sharp, pyramidal terminations. Their color is a beautiful moderately-pale green with a hint of blue, and they are transparent and quite clear. They rest a bed of white heulandite crystals that extends in veins through the basalt host.
