At least 5 intersecting Apophyllite crystals make up most of the mass of this cabinet piece. These crystals are in excellent condition, showing little damage, and the largest has dimensions of 1.5 x 1.4 x 1.3" (3.7 x 3.6 x 3.2 cm). All have good tetragonal form that appears neary cubic and shows truncated corners and rough basal termination faces. Their pale green color is somewhat uneven and their luster is pearly, and all are at least dimly transparent. They are accompanied by several "wheat sheaf" clusters of stilbite that are also in excellent condition. The Apophyllites are also dusted with small stilbite or heulandite crystals.
