165 mm Okenite, Calcite, Gyrolite on Quartz from Pune
Pune (Poonah), Maharashtra, India
Size: 140x165x73 mm (1794 gr.)
A very large specimen featuring numerous puffballs of Okenite with balls of Gyrolite on a heavy grey basalt, coated with white Quartz micro-crystals. This one is special because it has two nice twin crystals of Calcite, with dark phantoms inside.
Some needles of the Okenite balls are broken.

My father bought this one together with other Indian minerals, directly from India in the late 1980's.
