Description

You are bidding on a large and very rich sample of heulandite-Ca from Sterling Hill from the Ted Bartels collection. Numerous vugs are lined with groups and single crystals on epidote and other minerals. The label states this is apophyllite, but clearly is heulandite or even possibly clinoptilolite which isn't noted from Sterling Hill to date.
