Orange Stilbite – Rare new find
Origin: Africa, Lesotho, Albert’s Mountain
Very unusual orange form of Stilbite, found in very limited quantities.
This interesting mineral was named in 1797 by Jean Claude de la Métherie, the name derived from the Greek word “stilbein”, to glitter of shine, because of the pearly lustre of the crystal faces. It is a low-temperature secondary hydrothermal mineral that occurs in cavities of basaltic volcanic rocks.
The photos was taken in sunlight to show the best colours.
