Apophyllite, sometimes a beautiful Green to pale yellow to white, is a hydrated potassium calcium silicate mineral that forms in pyramidal, cubic, and druzy on a matrix or other minerals.
First discovered in 1806 by R.J. Hauy, and was named after the Greek word meaning “leaf”. It derived its name due to its tendency to crumble when heated.
This mineral can be clear or white, and can also be found as grey, pale yellow, reddish, and green.
Green Apophyllite is the rarest colour of them all and was found not long ago in India. Green Apophyllite can also be found in Brazil and Quebec, Canada. White or transparent Apophyllite can be found in India, Australia, Russia, Germany, Greenland, Italy, and the USA.
