   Green Apophyllite with Stilbite is a beautiful combination of two minerals from the zeolite group. Apophyllite is a colorless to white mineral that is known for its unique crystal habit and ability to fluoresce under UV light. Stilbite is a pink, peach, or white mineral that typically forms in radiating clusters. When the two minerals grow together, the result is a stunning specimen that showcases the unique properties of both minerals. Green Apophyllite with Stilbite is typically found in basaltic volcanic rocks and is often associated with other zeolite minerals.

   Green Apophyllite with Stilbite is a popular mineral among collectors due to its unique properties and beautiful color combination. In India, Apophyllite has been used for centuries as a healing stone, and it is believed to bring peace and tranquility to the home. The name "Apophyllite" comes from the Greek words "apo," meaning "off," and "phyllon," meaning "leaf," due to the mineral's tendency to exfoliate in thin sheets. Stilbite is named after the Greek word "stilbein," which means "to shine," in reference to the mineral's pearly luster. The mineral is found in several localities throughout India, with the state of Maharashtra being the most significant source. However, Green Apophyllite with Stilbite is also found in other parts of the world.
