Apophyllite: The name apophyllite refers to a specific group of phyllosilicates, a class of minerals that also includes the micas. These minerals are typically found as secondary minerals in holes in basalt or other igneous rocks. Apophyllites are popular as collector's minerals due to a combination of factors, including their abundance, color variety, and well-defined crystals. Naturally forming pyramidal structures, they refract light in obvious rainbows, and can form "natural pyramids" when subjected to rock tumbling.
