Mesolite & Fluorapophyllite. Pashan Hills, India: Mesolite is often found in geodes containing other zeolites. Mesolite's structure has a typical zeolite openness about it that allows large ions and molecules to reside and actually move around inside the overall framework. Mesolite's structure contains chains of silicate tetrahedrons aligned in one direction and this produces the needle-like crystals and the cleavage results from the weaker bonds between the chains.

This looks magical. And, yeah, it felt REALLY weird using the word "magical" to describe a rock.
