Apophyllite (disco ball habit) on Stilbite
stock #17.1-AX- 21-022
Rahuri, Ahmadnagar District,
Maharashtra, India
8.6 x 6.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Spring 2017

Probably the most desirable and rarest form of the mineral Apophyllite is the so called disco ball habit. Originally found some years ago while digging a well in Rahuri, these created a sensation. More recently a nearby well yielded a smaller find, all quickly sold. This specimen is from the first well, collected by the Maki family. Excellent esthetics with glass clear undamaged crystals, with two separate radiating hemispheres (over 3.5 CM) nicely perched on the crystallized matrix. A choice example.
