Apophyllite with Julgoldite on Basalt

Spectacularly clear Apophyllite has protected the contacted Julgoldite on its basalt matrix for 66 million years in this rarely seen form. These minerals crystallized in the basaltic cavities, formed from gas bubbles in lava flows. This one-of-a-kind piece combines an aesthetic and unique scientific specimen with a perfect small cabinet presentation that encourages further exploration. Location: Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India, 2016
