Doubly Terminated Apophyllite from Jalgaon, Maharashtra State, India. This is a beautiful example of an exceptionally large doubly terminated apophyllite crystal which hosts a trio of smaller, glassy apophyllites emerging on one side like a crown. The large main crystal measures a full 5.8 cms. long and has undamaged tips and very little in the way of attachment points - it's amost a free floater. I know I have other apophyllite crystals on my website, but as apophyllite goes, when I see one this nice, I am always happy to photograph it and post it.
