Mordenite with Apophyllite on Chalcedony Natural Mineral Specimen # B 3747

  • $ 0.00

This piece features three clusters of radiating sprays of lustrous, pointed prismatic pyramidal pink Mordenite clusters on Chalcedony. The Mordenite clusters show an interesting transition, in that the initial crystal development was translucent and slightly off-pink tinted, while the subsequent development became colorless and water-clear Apophyllite crystals. The luster is that of a faceted Apophyllite crystals diamond, the contrast between the vitreous luster of the Apophyllite and the silky Mordenite is incredible as is the symmetry of the clusters to the Chalcedony matrix. Making this specimen a unique, if not rare, find. No damage.
