160 mm Apophyllite from Jalgaon
Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India
Size: 81x160x135 mm (1284 gram)
A huge and great sample of Apophyllite on Quartz from Jalgoan Quarries.
It contains several beautiful Apophyllite crystals. They are some damages (especially along the edge), but overall the crystals are undamaged. The quartz almost looks bluish, probably because there is a thin layer of blue matrix behind the transparent quartz.
Please watch the video for the best view.
My father bought this one from miners in India about 30 years ago, and has kept it ever since then.
