The ornamental plate consists of literally hundreds of Apophyllite and Stilbite crystals. The majority of these Apophyllite crystals are well-formed, clear and colorless, while several of the crystals do have a yellow-green hue at the base and one area where the crystals take on a light green hue up towards the center. The Stilbites look as if they were sprinkled over the entire surface and exhibit the archetypical light pastel pink color with pearly luster. This piece comes with a detachable custom acrylic base with a metal armature. Both the mineral and stand sit on top a large sophisticated black display pedestal. The pedestal measures 22 x 14 x 24 inches (56 x 35 x 61 cm). Overall, this piece is in excellent condition, and it would make a strong impact as the undisputed centerpiece of any room. Overall Measurements: [Scale: 18 inch, 45 cm]
