Return to Main Minerals List
Apophyllite specimens are found in ancient lava and basalt flows. The crystals grow in the now solid
cavities, called amygdules or vesicles, formed by air bubbles when the rock was molten. Apophyllite is
also found in the voids in the contact metamorphic zone limestones that surround intrusive rocks. What
makes apophyllite so popular among collectors is its fantastic crystals with their gem-like vitreous to pearly
luster. Apophyllite almost always forms good crystals of two major types. The favorite crystal habit is the
rectangular prism capped by a steep four sided pyramid (tetragonal dipyramid). By far its most impressive
color is the pastel green color that augments specimens from Poona, India. Some crystals of apophyllite
are cut as gems, but mostly just for collectors.
The other common crystal habit is a pseudo-cubic crystal that occurs when there is no pyramid and the
prism is ended by a flat termination (a pinacoid). The pinacoid is a crystal form that is perpendicular to the
length of the crystal and so can abruptly terminate the prism.
Apophyllite, whose name roughly means "to leaf apart" in Greek, is a mineral classic. It was given its name
because crystals tend to peel or flake apart when they are heated due to the loss of water molecules.
Although not that well-known by the general public, apophyllite is quite popular among mineral collectors. It
is probably the first exotic mineral that a young collector will own after filling up on specimens of calcite,
quartz, pyrite, galena, mica, fluorite, gypsum, apatite, etc, etc. After these common minerals, apophyllite
seems like a real rarity and it offers so much to the collector. It has beauty, pastel colors, a bright luster and
interesting well formed habits.

Old Stock Apophyllite and Stilbite from
Mahad India

Stilbite is a common and perhaps the most popular zeolite mineral for collectors. Stilbite crystals can
aggregate together to form a structure resembling wheat sheafs. This hourglass structure looks like
several crystals stacked parallel to each other with the tops and bottoms of this structure fanning out while
the middle remains thin. Stilbite's hallmark crystal habit is unique to stilbite and a rarer but related zeolite
called stellerite. Stilbite is a striking specimen with its pearly luster and often colorful pink tints. Stilbite
commonly forms nice crystals inside the petrified bubbles (called vesicles) of volcanic rocks that have
undergone a small amount of metamorphism.
