Bombay Quarry, Mumbai District, Maharashtra, India
Dome shaped white stellerites demonstrate the superb radial growth of this species. While the surface appears smooth and glistening, close examination shows the patches and coalescing nature of the piece. There are two large stellerites that are side by side and are decorated with smaller pinwheel forms on the edges. They rest on a mat of partially dehydrated laumontite which in turn covers a basalt matrix. There are small areas of green celadonite on the bottom of the piece, which is not visible from the top. Overall in great condition with only the plate’s edges being incomplete.
