Description

This fine specimen features numerous of white, tabular, highly pearlescent Gyrolite richly lining a vug. The almost transparent Gyrolite is well shaped, and good terminated. Such specimens with that clean white colour are hard to come by nowaydays. Even in the heydays, good Gyrolites have been more rare and sought than the other ordinary zeolite pieces.
