Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Stilbite (series of zeolites)
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Geode
Origin (Country): India

Gigantic geode filled with big pink stilbite and light green apophyllite crystals.
102 x 59 x 42 cm en 186 kg.

The geode can be exhibited horizontally or vertically. In order to put it in upright position the piece needs a little support on the back of, for example, a block of wood or a stone.
A part of the crystals has some sand deposit on it. And that side also has a small saw cut that was not finished. The pictures provide a good impression of this lot and show all the details.

Pickup is preferred because of the weight.
It can be shipped on a pallet probably with DHL. Costs are probably around 50 euros for the Netherlands and Belgium. Other countries will be a lot higher.
After the auction, we will contact each other to agree upon a date for pickup or delivery.
