Origin and history.
Apophyllite belongs to the zeolites group and was discovered in the 19th century by R.J. Hauy. It knows many colors like white, green, blue, pink and sometimes colorless. The most rare and expensive colors are green and pink. Apophyllite is found in many places, but the most prettiest and by far most popular ones come from Poona, India. It gets its name from the Greek words “Apo ” and “Phyllon”, which stands for “flake off”. They felt like apophyllite looked a lot like snow and also felt very soft.
Apophyllite is very hard to polish since it has a hardness of only 5, that’s why you mostly see them sold in clusters. You hardly ever see any apophyllite jewelry unless it contains a raw crystal.
