Not more than 10 Apophyllite crystals rest on the stilbite-and-agate base of this hand specimen. These crystals are small, not exceeding 1" (2.5 cm) in length, but are in excellent condition, showing no damage. All have excellent tetragonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces, and some are doubly-terminated. All are transparent and clear at their termination tips, but cloud to a milky translucence towards their bases. All show a bright pearly-to-vitreous luster. The most exposed and best-formed crystal has a noticeable olive-green tinge that extends from its base to the end of only one of its terminations- the other half of the crystal is colorless. The base on which they rest is made up of intergrown, possibly stalactitic white agate formations that are covered with countless tiny stilbites. A few of these, however, are large, reaching 0.7" (1.8 cm) in length. A small amount of basalt is interspersed with the stilbites at their base.
