A different one! This piece features a plate of parallel growth albite crystals with a cluster of very sharp, gemmy apophyllite crystals on it. The apophyllite crystals appear orangey due to iron tinted pectolite needles that passthrough them. The apophyllite crystals are very well formed, steeply terminated prisms. A less common combination from this amazing, long closed mine.
