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." Stilbite is from the same Zeolite family that apophyllite is from. Said to help one open up & access their inner creativity.
This particular cluster is from India from Jalgaon. It is super unique, with incredible clarity and a gorgeous spray of bright peach stilbite. It weighs 3.8 oz and measures about 3 x 2 x 2 inches. It also has some blue chalcedony on the interor, see top of first photo. :)
**This is a softer stone, do not get it wet or hot as it can break, Keep it safe, handle with care.
