Satyamani Natural Apophyllite Epistilbite for Calmness/Reiki/Stress reliever is one of the rarer zeolites, a popular group of minerals to collect. Satyamani Natural Apophyllite Epistilbite is crystallized, transparent mineral of the zeolite family. This mineral has a soothing quality, allows one to relieve stress and calm the spirit. Epistilbite commonly forms in the petrified bubbles (called vesicles) of volcanic rocks that have had a slight amount of exposure to metamorphism.

Epistilbite commonly forms in the petrified bubbles (called vesicles) of volcanic rocks that have had a slight amount of exposure to metamorphism. It also forms in some pegmatites. Epistilbite\'s name means over stilbite perhaps in allusion to crystals of epistilbite that form over crystals of stilbite, a closely related zeolite. Epistilbite has similar crystal habits to stilbite although it rarely forms the large, impressive clusters that have made stilbite so famous. Satyamani Natural Apophyllite Epistilbite

Apophyllite-NaF: NaCa4Si8O20F · 8(H2O)

Composition

Hydrous calcium potassium fluoro-hydroxyl-silicate. The ratio fluorine to hyroxyl varies among two group members, and the potassium is replaced with sodium in another member.

Variable Formula

Apophyllite Group: (K,Na)Ca4Si8O20(F,OH) · 8(H2O)

Crystal Forms 
and Aggregates

Crystals are most often in cubic-shaped crystals, with distinctive triangular corners. Commonly in perfect, pseudocubic or rectangular crystals, as well as sharply pointed prismatic pyramidal crystals that are usually doubly terminated. Also tabular, blocky, in cubic groups, in platy clusters, druzy, and instalactitic formations of crystals. An unusual habit is in blocky radiating sprays and rounded groupings resembling disco balls. Crystals are almost always striated.

(Note: Apophyllite-(KF) and Apophyllite-(KOH) both crystallize in the tetragonal crystal system, whereas Apophyllite-(NaF) crystallizes in the orthorhombic system.)
