A highly aesthetic large cabinet specimen from the famed Daye Copper Mine of China.  Tabular blades of translucent to transparent Apophyllite intergrown with yellow-brown Stilbite "crowning" the Quartz cluster in just the right places.  Totally unique in China and in the world that should not be taken lightly for this uncommon species!  In excellent condition (even better in person), this came out in 2018 and their equals have not turned up since then.  A superb quality beautiful piece that should not be missed!
