Description

Exceptionally rich basaltic geode filled with myriads of semitransparent analcime crystals. Crystals are mostly grown as concatenated individuals, making a thick carpet that fully covers the geode. Some crystals stand out because are either overlapping one another or are quite gemmy at the top. This is the richest analcime from this locality I have even come across.

Elegant and very rare to find from this Czech locality with this richness, it comes from the former collections Lindemann and Jasker (Hamburg, Germany) and with two Dave Bunk labels (Colorado, USA; not shown).
