Apophyllite on stilbite
<p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Momin Akhada Well Dig, near Rahuri, Maharashtra State, India 
<br /><br />4" Across 
<br /><br />This fine piece was found in around 2001. Importantly, the flat terminations are natural crystal faces and not cleavage faces. Momin Akhada Well produced in around 2001. Many of the specimens from this locality were much larger but most of these larger specimens displayed no more apophyllite than this piece while also displaying significantly more stilbite covered rock matrix. Hence, the utility of this specimen is one of its appealing traits. Also, when viewed from the reverse side, no damage is obvious on this fine piece.
