OKQ-181

OKQ-181    Heulandite     from a forested area near Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India.  I purchased a lot of 80 of these specimens which were marketed as "Red Heulandites".  They are a deep salmon color and lean toward red but I find the color "red" to be somewhat subjective.  This is one of the best examples... it is sculpted as most good Indian mineral specimens are, so it sits nicely.  It measures 9 x 6.5 x 3.4 cm.  No damage, excellent luster and form, and a richer and rarer color than the norm.  $65
