This is a breathtaking 5" tall, sparkling mineral association, containing stilbite that has a pink coloration formed from chalcedony stalactites. This was collected from Jalgaon in Maharashtra, India. The stilbite is translucent, with some crystals bearing a double terminated appearance. The chalcedony stalactites are translucent, and have a faint blue-green hue. A truly wonderful specimen perfect for any mineral collection.
Stilbite is probably the most common zeolite found in these deposits. Crystals often form flowery, bowtie or hourglass shaped structures and come in a variety of colors. Some of the most beautiful colorations are the pink or peach tints.
