This isn't just another specimen of zeolites from India - here we have a historic specimen of fluorapophyllite with nice accenting sprays of natrolite from the mining area of Mariánská Skála (German: Marienberg) in the Ústí nad Labem region of the Czech Republic. While I don't want to jump to assuming which variety of apophyllite is present, fluorapophyllite-(K) is the only variety noted to have been mined there. The specimen comes with a gorgeous old handwritten German label, which points to it being mined when the area was still a part of the Kingdom of Bohemia prior to 1918. Said label is split down the middle and somewhat tattered (understandable given its age), though is still almost all legible.
