Apophyllite (on Quartz matrix)


Origin: Africa, Lesotho, Butha-Buthe District


The name Apophyllite refers to a specific group of phyllosilicate minerals, derived from the Greek for “away from” (apo) and “leaf” (phyllos), because of the way it exfoliates when heated. It is a secondary mineral that occurs in cavities of basaltic volcanic rocks.
