Sorry for the quality of the picture. I have trouble shooting white minerals.

Thank you for your comment. I have had this one in my collection since 2001. It moves from my T/N collection to my U.S collection depending on what I am showing at the time. It started out life bigger then this but the dealer I got in from trimmed it down to this T/N.

A wonderful fluorapophyllite on prehnite from the Fairfax quarry, Centreville, Fairfax County, Virginia, that happily resides in my collection. It is 12 cm across.

The turquoise photo is quite nice. I've found those notoriously difficult to photograph!.
Say- what is the black matrix on those?
