Thompsonite-Ca with Mesolite
stock #18-AX-6-041
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
5.8 x 4.1 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Worldwide mix summer

A sparkling pink hemisphere of Thomsonite sits esthetically on a contrasting matrix. From a pocket found a few years ago, these pink Thompsonite were an exciting new find then, unlike any others with a covering of tiny needles of Mesolite that gave a nice luster. In fine condition, these are no longer available, and at that time very few were undamaged like this. A great addition to any suite of Indian or Zeolite minerals.
Thomsonite-Ca
stock #Alec 6-075
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
5.9 x 5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Pre Holiday 2017

Most Thomsonite is not especially esthetic or display worthy unless it has form and color like this. Here is a pretty pink ball with sparkling micro crystals all over the surface. The matrix is a light green hue making a nice contrast. This is in fine condition from a small pocket found in 2011.
Apophyllite -partly included by Celedonite
stock #A-27-099
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
7.9 x 5 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $140
new june 17

A sculptural arrangement of elongated crystals of Apophyllite with green inclusions and some zoning due to Celedonite inclusions. In fine condition and with great form this stands out among the many average pieces from the famed Deccan traps of India. As fine minerals from many locales have become so incredibly expensive, it is still possible to build a suite of top notch Indian minerals for a relatively modest investment.
Thomsonite-Ca
stock #Alec 6-037
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
3.3 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $180


Thompsonite is usually a drab, plain white mineral but this find was something very special. In 2011 a small find of sparkling pink balls on a contrasting dark greenish matrix was made. There were very few pieces that were not damaged, and none found since. This is a pristine smaller piece with a single ball covered with sparkling micro needles. In good light it has a sort of cauliflower or brain-like look. A nice example that is a pretty addition to a zeolite or Indian mineral suite.
