Comment: A fabulous, free-form, sculptural combination specimen from Jalgaon. A striking, delicately integrown cluster of lustrous, pretty salmon-pink, stilbite blades and pearlescent, saddle-shaped heulandite books is attached to weirdly shaped chalcedony stalactite. The core of the stalactite is visible at either end. The beautiful, large, doubly terminated, stilbite blade is 3.8 cm. There is no damage to the stilbites or heulandites. Certainly a striking modern art mineral specimen from this noted locale.
