Apophyllite on Stilbite

Dimensions: 7.3 x 4.2 x 2.1cm.

Magnificent novelty! An extraordinary pocket of Apophyllite discovered in  end of year 2023. The crystals have a luminosity and sparkle  never seen before, as soon as Apohyllite crystals are illuminated, the light is returned in a sparkling manner,  the white matrix of  stilbite adding contrast to this mirror effect.  These microcrystals form very aesthetic spheres with crystallization  perfect. These pieces remind me by their appearance of certain Rhodochrosites from South Africa (Typically "the N'Chwanning" snail") which have this density of color and this incomparable shine. Diameter of apohyllite 1.7cm.

 Dimensions without the acrylic base, which is supplied with the mineralogical specimen.

The mineral is not stuck to the base (soft putty).
