Detailed information on mineral specimen No. 54496:

Minerals Species: Apophyllite over Thomsonite with Stilbite-Ca.
Location of mineral deposit: Rahuri, Nagar District, Maharashtra, India.
Description: Hemispherical formation of elongated lustrous transparent colorless apophyllite crystals to 17 mm over a pink core of thomsonite crystals that are visible beneath, plus a translucent pale-yellow 14 mm stilbite crystal on one edge. This specimen is from a small find in 2011, encountered while digging a well, similar to the more prolific find of similarly-shaped green apophyllite in spherical formations from the find at Momin Akhada. This specimen clearly formed over a spherical cluster of thomsonite crystals, which may be the same mechanism of the Momin Akhada formations. Very few of these apophyllite specimens were found in this deposit and I purchased all of the undamaged specimens found. No additional specimens have surfaced in recent years, assuring that these are truly from a small find and we will probably never see any more like them. No damage.
Overall size of mineral specimen: 4x3.5x2.5 cm.
Size of individual crystals: 1-17 mm
Price: $495 net (plus shipping).
