Magnificent novelty! A pocket of extraordinary Apophyllite discovered at the end of 2023. The crystals have a luminosity and shine never seen before, as soon as the samples are illuminated, the light is returned in a sparkling way, the white matrix of stilbite adding contrast to this mirror effect. These microcrystals form very aesthetic spheres with perfect crystallization. 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. This piece is one of the largest crystallizations of this discovery (the diameter of the Apohyllite is 2.1cm) and the color is enhanced. The whole is very harmonious with the association of multi-centimetre Stilbite crystals.

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

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