Apophyllite forms alongside the Zeolite family in India.
Zeolite is a group name for (what is now) a vast amount of framework alumosilicates. Zeolites have an open "framework" structure made from alumina and silica that can trap other molecules within them; typically water molecules and alkali/alkaline-Earth metal ions. Zeolite is used in everything from dishwasher detergents to removing radioactive particles from nuclear waste sites!
This Apophyllite specimen has a distinctly icy look to it, the color is a cool translucent grey/white with slight undertones of blue throughout. This piece is highly textured with crystal faces and incredibly gemmy portions both reflecting light very well. This piece would be perfect for collectors young and old, and for school projects. Have the beauty of ice in your home without the mess of it melting!
It is thought that Apophyllite make excellent Reiki stones because they can help attune you to the energies around you. Along with that attunement, it is believed that Apophyllite can help in relationships to understand the feelings behind words instead of the words themselves.
