Apophyllite Crystal

The meaning of the name Apophyllite comes from the Greek words that mean 'get' and 'leaf', referring to its proclivity to exfoliate like a leaf, when heated. Apophyllite stones have a high water content, which gives them the ability to conduct electricity. You will find them in a naturally occurring pyramid shape, as druzy crystals on another mineral, in clusters and in the massive form.

Apophyllite is a hydrated potassium calcium silicate mineral that crystallizes in the form of pyramidal structures, cubic crystals, as well as druzy on a matrix or other minerals. he common color of Apophyllite is clear or white, although it can also be found as grey, yellow, red, and green. Green Apophyllite is the rarest color of them all and was found a few decades ago by an Indian farmer in Poona, India. Notable localities for the common white or translucent forms of Apophyllite include India, Australia, Russia, Germany, Greenland, Italy, and the USA.
