Collector's Piece: Red Apophyllite with Druzy Quartz from Nashik Quarry, India
Dimension: 4.4 x 3.8cm x 3.7cm
Locality: Nashik Quarry (Nasik Quarry), Nashik District, Maharashtra, India
Very attractive single, pseudo-cubic red Apophyllite crystal coming off matrix with only a small contact point (i.e. almost a complete floater) from Nashik Quarry of India. The photos don't do justice as it is way more beautiful in person! Red Apophyllite is a hydrated pottassium calcium silicate and is a rarer form of Apophyllite than the green and colorless ones. Druzy Quartz crystals partially coated some surfaces of the Apophyllite sparkle like snow or sugar coatings, mesmerizing!
Price inclusive of a high quality acrylic display box.
