Description

In the year 2015, there was new find of this type of apophyllite with inclusion of celadonite from Akole in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, India.

Many specimens had laumontite associated with them, which deteorated after few months.

Recently I checked the entire lot and found some nice specimens not or very little affected by loumontite. This specimen belongs to very little affected category.

Apophyllite has good color and shape. Very attractive formation. Specimen beautiful from all sides.
