Miniature - 6.6 x 4.7 x 2.8 cm (2.6 x 1.9 x 1.1 inches)
58 grams (0.13 pounds)
Specimen status: Available     Send an email to order

A dark basalt matrix hosts a spray of stilbite crystals which is accompanied by numerous, colorless and (in some cases) gemmy calcites. The stilbites reach about 2.6 cm in length, with this longest group also being terminated. The calcites add a little sparkle. Not a very sexy specimen, but highly representative of the species and locality.
