OKL-570

OKL-570      Stilbite Stalactites with Quartz coatings      Poona, India.  I seldom purchase these any longer with Indian zeolite minerals being so common on today's market.  This one however really got my attention!  It is composed of nine beautifully formed stalactites with large blades of stilbite, to 2.5 cm each, coating all their surfaces.  The specimen is a floater having all its contacts on base healed.  It measures a large 14.4 x 10 x 8 cm.  The really attractive quality this specimen has is its high luster (which is not evident in the photos).  Way to high for stilbite.  Once I got it home I noticed why this was so.  There is a microscopic coating of quartz druse on most of the specimen's surfaces.  This specimen far exceeds the normal aesthetics associated with this species.  There is no damage what so ever and it sits well viewing equally well from any side.  Impressive!  $395

OKD-426

OKD-426    Calcite and Chalcedony      Nasik, India.  I came upon this unusual piece approximately ten years ago and stocked it away for a rainy day.  I have yet to see another like this.  I've observed my share of calcite scepters, but none of this quality on chalcedony stalactites.  Put these interesting forms together in a matrix vug and it becomes a wonderfully unusual specimen for the collector who thinks they have seen everything unique from India.  This fine specimen measures 14 x 12 x 6 cm overall and is totally damage free.  The scepters are clear to white with selective face coatings of a sugary quartz or secondary calcite overgrowth, their stems are darker than the caps.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.   I am able to offer this fine piece for only....$950

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-214...looking at vertical twin plane

Smaller twins at bottom left.

Good view of twin plane

OKI-214     Gyrolite on and in Calcite Twins     Poona, India.  An impressive specimen when one takes a moment to consider all that is here.  The primary crystal is attached to several smaller twins and has a minor region of contact on backside from where it looks to have been attached against some gyrolite or okenite.  The specimen displays like a floater and is certainly an impressive twin.  It measures 7.4 x 5.2 x 4 cm and is clear with minor inclusions including well formed balls of gyrolite.  Some gyrolites also appear on the surface of the crystals.  Only one minor rub which will need to be searched out with magnification in order to find it.  Displays great from all sides.  One of the nicest calcite twins I’ve ever had in stock.  Outstanding Indian calcite!  245$

OKI-215     Gyrolite on and in Calcite Twins     Poona, India.  An impressive specimen when one takes a moment to consider all that is here.  The primary crystal is a floater with a minor region of contact on bottom from where it looks to have been attached against some gyrolite or okenite.  There is also a chunk missing but the specimen sits on this area so the specimen displays like a floater and is certainly an impressive twin.  It measures 6.5 x 6.2 x 4.5 cm and is clear with minor inclusions including well formed balls of gyrolite.  Numerous larger gyrolites also appear on the surface of the crystal.  Displays great from all sides.  Outstanding Indian calcite!  220$

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-114

OKI-114     Stilbite and Heulandite    Undisclosed “Well Excavation” in India, 2003.  I was lucky enough to get these fine specimens from a new dealer at Tucson as he unpacked his wares to sell.  I high graded out the very best specimens he had for sale in manageable sizes.  Some of the plates were 2 to 3 feet across.  No damage to any of these fine, displayable specimens.  Their color is richer than most stilbite specimens found coming from India these days and more reminiscent of stellerite.  The stilbites are translucent and the heulandites when present are nearly clear.  All of these specimens are priced well below what they normally would be due to the fair price I purchased them at.  A great small specimen with a large, well exposed heulandite measuring 3.5 cm and attractive stilbites to 3.8 cm.  Overall size is 10.5 x 7 x 5 cm and the specimen stands on edge for better display.  A fine specimen for only 40$!!!

OKF-704

OKF-704     Gyrolite and Okenite on paramorphs of White Prehinte after Laumontite    Padanvadi Quarry, Bombay, India.  This is a very rare combination to have with the white prehnite (vs. green).  The specimen is a branching network of molds which are coated by balls of gyrolite to .8 cm each.  The piece measures 6 x 5 x 3.5 cm and has only a tiny contact on its bottom.  The sprays of okenite are small and mostly on the bottom.  This specimen gives outstanding views from every side.  Zero damage and high aesthetics.

OKF-696

OKF-696    Apophyllite and Stilbite on Chalcedony (Stalactite)   Jalgaon, India.  This is a very old and fine specimen from this prolific producer of zeolites.  The stalactite measures 7.3 cm long and the fine double terminated apophyllite crystal which dominates it is over 5 cm tip to tip.  The piece is completely free of damage, high on luster and perfectly formed.  Stalactites of this quality are normally far more expensive even when from a common mineral.  The pink stilbite bisects the primary crystals edge and there are lots of tiny riders to add flash.  There is a tiny dab of Fun-tac, blue at its base which I have not tried to remove, assuming it will soon be mounted vertically again by its new owner.  Top shelf display piece.  60$ 

 

 

 

 

OKF-309

Ward’s.  Circ. 1975.  13 .5 x 8 x 5 cm overall.  And very displayable piece of three bright green apophyllite clusters on white stilbite.  All three clusters show some crystals with cleaves.  I have photographed all of these for inspection.  The rich green color is what is expected of the very best apophyllites ever to come out of India.  Still a very attractive displayable specimen.  $100

 

 

 

 

 

OKF-208

OKF-208    Stilbite on Apophyllite     Poona, India.  This exceptional display specimen sports a 8.2 cm stilbite bowtie amongst numerous terminated clear apophyllites.  Several of the apophyllites have damage but it is all on the backside of the piece.  This specimen couldn't display much better from the front or the sides.  8 x 7 x 5.1 cmThis price is a giveaway for piece with this kind of aesthetic appeal.  $55

OKF-024    Apophyllite “Flowers” on Stilbite    India.  This is a wonderful specimen from the now famous "Well Discovery" which is composed of four flowers (two intergrown) which sit up high of a plate of stilbite.  The large piece measures 20 x 16 cm.  The groupings of apophyllites measure to 5 cm each.  They are fine green crystals which grade to clear at their terminations.  This is a spectacular, showy specimen which has no damage, even when inspected under magnification.  A top shelf piece which is very aesthetic  and now becoming difficult to get in large specimens.  The price implies that there is something wrong with the piece.  This would be a false assumption.  It is a spectacular specimen offered at a more than fair price.    1,100$

 

 

 

 

 

OKD-520

OKD-520     Apophyllite    Jalgaon, India.  This old specimen is unlike any we see on the market today.  The crystals are so clear they actually look like shards of glass.  The main body of this piece is made up of two large crystals up to 3.8 cm each and the remainder of tiny gem like crystals.  The piece looks more like glass than apophyllite!  6 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm.  A very impressive, damage free specimen with amazing aesthetics.  I usually see this material when it becomes available for many times this price.   75$

OKD-474     Gyrolite and Apophyllite on Quartz    Bombay, India.     This specimen is an older piece which came out decades ago.  I have not seen quartz like this from India in quite a while.  This piece is very difficult to describe due to its uniqueness.  It looks like a group of parallel growth crystals which have a growth (regrowth) plain perpendicular to the “C” axis of the crystals.  The seam has a thin layer of what appears to be sugary white quartz.  On these big quartz (to 6 cm each) are green gyrolite balls to several millimeters each.  On these are several blocky apophyllites to 1.3 cm each.  Certainly an unusual and attractive specimen.  High luster, great form and zero damage.  One thin edge of matrix contact on base of piece.  8 x 6 x 5 cm.   175$

Close up

OKD-430    Green Apophyllite on Stilbite   Poona, India.  Here is an old classic which represents the very finest apophyllite to leave India.  This is an old specimen with about 25 points of the deepest, gemmy green apophyllite ever to be found protruding off of a light pink stilbite matrix.  One missing point is visible under magnification so it’s not perfect, however unless you nose is right against it you will find it to be quite nice.  Highly aesthetic and displayable.  Apophyllite grouping is approx. 4.5 cm long by 2 cm wide.  Entire piece measures 7.5 x 7.5 x 6 cm.  It is getting very tough to find these now.  595$
