Apophyllite may look a lot like clear quartz, but it differs dramatically. It is a softer stone with a hardness of 5 on Mohs hardness scale. It is thought to be a premier stone for meditation as, energetically, it is believed to help one connect to angelic realms & help one to activate their inner vision or psychic abilities. One of my favorite things I have read about this mineral - "it helps one to realize that perfection is a natural state of being."
This particular apophyllite cluster is from the Jalgaon district of India. It measures about 6 x 4.5 x 2 inches and weighs 1lb 4.6oz. This one feels extra special as it has a peppered look with what I believe to be carbon. It also has several double terminated crystals growing on it (pointed at both ends! said to act like a battery)
**This is a softer stone, do not get it wet or hot as it can break & it can also be scratched by other stones.
