Apophyllite with Prehnite
Luck Stone Quarry, Bealton, Fauquier County
4 x 3.3 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
Late Summer 2021
An older Virginia (USA) Apophyllite with crystals nearly covering a thin Prehnite matrix. This locality is not as well-known as some of the other Quarries in this region, and thin habit of Apophyllite is very unusual as well. The wide faces of the crystals are lightly frosted with druzy Apophyllites while the thinner faces are transparent, glassy and smooth.
