This is a nice specimen of scolecite. It presents very well, having a tall cluster of crystals with a cluster of smaller crystals affixed about 1/3 of the way up. The largest crystals do not have terminations, but some of the smaller ones do. All of the scolecite is colorless, with transparency obscured by numerous internal fractures. Close examination shows that the crystal surfaces have scores of very tiny crystals, slightly dulling the luster. The specimen looks good when backlit, as the individual crystals show up better that way.
