ASTROPHYLLITE SPECIMENS

Generally, there are two types of astrophyllite. Shiny needles of astrophyllite can be spread more or less evenly across the calcite matrix (this material is called "rain"), or they can form gorgeous stars. The latter has much more value for mineral collectors. Actually, this is what the name of this mineral means - "astra" is star in Greek.
