In 2015, the last of the quarries in India which for years produced okenite were shut down for good, thus ending a run of cheap, easy-to-find specimens of this intriguing zeolite mineral. So suddenly, the Indian dealers jacked up their prices on their remaining okenite specimens, pricing them out of reach of most buyers. I found this one on the table of a German dealer, who had not heard the news, and I was very pleased with the fine quality and excellent coverage (not to mention the fair price). A few of the puffballs are compressed, but the damage is minimal and pretty much unnoticeable.
