Apophyllite (on Quartz matrix)

 

Origin: Africa, Lesotho, Butha-Buthe District

 

The name Apophyllite refers to a specific group of phyllosilicate minerals, derived from the Greek for "away from" (apo) and "leaf" (phyllos), because of the way it exfoliates when heated. It is a secondary mineral that occurs in cavities of basaltic volcanic rocks.

 

Various interesting specimens (Incl. Stilbite, Quartz and Apophyllite) from a limited source are offered.
