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 & I believe it may have a mix of Chalcedony / Quartz on the base under the crystals as it has more of a blue hue to it. There are also very interesting formation on the back, probably from said Chalcedony growing in stalactite formations. It is an incredible quality and can be displayed flat or stand on end. It measures about 4 inches X 3.5 inches x 2 inches and weighs 9oz.
**This is a softer stone, do not get it wet or hot as it can break & it can also be scratched by other stones. Handle with care!
