Thompsonite -Ca
stock #AX-6-019
Maharashtra, India
6.2 x 4.8 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $360

Sparkling pink balls of Thompsonite on a contrasting matrix- a very attractive specimen of this usually drab mineral. The outer surfaces of the balls are covered with tiny needle crystals that make the luster far more bright than most typical Thompsonite. This is from a small find about 6 years ago that was unlike any Thompsonite found before or since, and were perhaps the best specimens ever. We sold this piece some time ago it is now back and we are happy to have it. One edge of this piece has balls that show the inner structure along the side. The overall quality, color and condition is excellent and this is a super example of this more uncommon Zeolite. A colorful and attractive addition to any suite of Zeolites or Indian minerals.

Thomsonite-Ca with Mesolite
stock #AX-6-041
Maharashtra, India
5.8 x 4.1 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Worldwide mix summer

A sparkling pink hemisphere of Thomsonite sits esthetically on a contrasting matrix. From a pocket found a few years ago, these pink Thompsonite were an exciting new find then, unlike any others with a covering of tiny needles of Mesolite that gave a nice luster. In fine condition, these are no longer available, and at that time very few were undamaged like this. A great addition to any suite of Indian or Zeolite minerals.

Maharashtra, India
5.9 x 5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Pre Holiday 2017

Most Thomsonite is not especially esthetic or display worthy unless it has form and color like this. Here is a pretty pink ball with sparkling micro crystals all over the surface. The matrix is a light green hue making a nice contrast. This is in fine condition from a small pocket found in 2011.

Thomsonite-Ca - fine spheroidal habit
stock #AX 6-067
Shakur Quarry - Nasik District
Maharashtra, India
9.3 x 8 x 7.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1950
Spring 2017

A killer cabinet sized Thomsonite with perfect spheres of radial crystals stacked like scoops of ice cream. One of the best pieces (and my favorite) from a small find about 4 years ago. Looks great from all sides, the orange color is uncommon for Thomsonite as well. A great addition to any Indian mineral or Zeolite suite there is no damage at all. Choice!

stock #AX-6-071
Shakur Quarry - Nasik District
Maharashtra, India
9 x 7.5 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $780

A simple yet impressively esthetic Thomsonite with 2 perfect spheres of reddish-brown crystals reaching 4 CM across. Very 3 dimensional piece this displays super well from most any angle, there is no damage. We do not offer Indian zeolites unless they are something really special, this is an especially attractive, colorful piece and surprisingly pretty for what is usually a dull white mineral.

stock #AX-6-037
Maharashtra, India
3.3 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $180

Thompsonite is usually a drab, plain white mineral but this find was something very special. In 2011 a small find of sparkling pink balls on a contrasting dark greenish matrix was made. There were very few pieces that were not damaged, and none found since. This is a pristine smaller piece with a single ball covered with sparkling micro needles. In good light it has a sort of cauliflower or brain-like look. A nice example that is a pretty addition to a zeolite or Indian mineral suite.
