Apophyllite Minerals

Apophyllite is a clear or white silicate stone and a member of the Silicate family, it was first discovered in the 19th century by RJ Hauy. The name derives from the Greek word combination of “apo” which means away from and “phyllos” which means leaf, together the name directly means “to leafapart.” The name is in reference to the way it tends to peel or flake apart much like a leaf when it is exposed to high temperatures, this occurs due to water loss in its structure. An alternative name for Apophyllite is Zeolite but even with the name, it is not a member of the Zeolite family. However, Apophyllite is considered a member of the Phyllosilicate family.
