This batch of citrine apophyllite came from a small cave at Fengjiashan Mine. The quantity of this specific specimen is extremely small and only owned by a few people, which makes sense that it’s nearly impossible to see often in North America. Indian apophyllite contains a high concentration of Silicon, Calcium, and Potassium, whereas Chinese apophyllite has a high concentration of Aluminum and Sodium. Some of these pieces are Fluo-Apophyllite. This particular cluster is a floater.
