Stilbite on Chalcedony
I’m generally not a big fan of most Zeolites, mainly because they’re overabundant and usually of poor quality. But I discovered a handful that I couldn’t look the other way and picked them up. These Stilbites are perfectly formed, translucent with a beautiful pearl luster. This particular piece is nicely balanced with excellent contrast and has a kind of “motion” to it (don’t ask me to explain . . . ). Amazing show piece.
