Excavated in April 2020, this is a museum quality large cabinet specimen from India measuring 14.9cm across!  A huge, perfect sphere of creamy white acicular crystals of Scolecite (a member of Zeolite family) resembling a peon flower in full bloom beautifully perched onto a Basalt matrix.  The Scolecite “flower” is further accented with peachy orange Stilbite crystals on the sides of the piece.  The gigantic size, perfection and aesthetics make this a very rare species from anywhere.  I was stunned when I first saw it, it’s so 3 dimentional and displays super well from all angles.  This is the finest quality Indian Scolecite specimen that is especially attractive, a total surprise that you’d see occasionally turn up in old collections.  Comes with a high quality copper wired display stand as pictured.
