In terms of both quantity and quality, the best zeolites and associated minerals from the Deccan basalts of India are arguably unmatched on Earth. With such a large expanse of mineral-laden basalt present and the high demand for rock currently in place across India in addition to gained knowledge that mineral specimens generally have a higher value than basalt, the flow of fine mineral specimens from India is likely to continue for a very long time. For the serious collector, it should be noted that certain factors such as urban sprawl and isolated one-time finds, however, will result in some specimen types being more limited or no longer available (for example, the most prolific okenite producing quarry in Mumbai is now closed) so new, exceptional finds are still important to follow as the crystal type or combination of minerals may not be seen again as each find is unique in its own way.
All of our specimens below were imported directly from the quarries in India. Geode Gallery LLC is one of the larger U.S. importers of Indian minerals, having over 20 years of experience working with trusted sources in Maharashtra, India. Our goal is to offer a variety of specimen sizes and types to assist any level of collector in building a suite of Indian minerals.
