This specimen displays hundreds of small aqua-blue transparent apophyllite crystals and a crust of white heulandite (and a few larger translucent to transparent heulandite crystals). The color of the apophyllite is rather unusual - we usually find it either colorless or green. The individual crystals are transparent with a vitreous luster, and generally have rectangular cross sections and roof terminations, although many of the crystals appear to have had a basal cleavage instead of a termination. The contrast of white heulandite, aqua apophyllite, and a dark brown host rock makes for an aesthetic specimen.
