Apophyllite is more often then not the star attraction and very popular among collectors for its fantastic crystals with their gem-like vitreous to pearly luster. Apophyllite almost always forms good crystals of two major types. The favorite crystal habit is the rectangular prism capped by a steep four sided pyramid. A doubly terminated crystal is exceptionally special. The faces of the pyramids are rotated 45 degrees with respect to the prism faces and so plunge down into the prism edges. This produces a diamond-shaped pyramidal face instead of a typical triangular pyramid face. The shape is an extraordinary example of tetragonal crystal form. Although normally colorless or white, colored examples of apophyllite are always treasured. Some crystals of apophyllite are cut as gems, but are mostly just for the collectors. Looks good with Prehnite!

Apophyllite is believed to encourage self-reflection, facilitating the examination of behavior and the correction of perceived imbalances or flaws. It is known as a truth-revealing stone, promoting an authentic self-expression to the world. This mineral is thought to possess a calming influence, effectively reducing stress, and releasing mental blockages and negative thought patterns. Additionally, apophyllite is associated with the release of suppressed emotions, aiding in the overcoming of anxiety, worries, and fears, thus allowing for the tolerance of uncertainty.

Prehnite is often considered a stone of unconditional love and is said to have the ability to heal those in the role of healers themselves. Placing it in a garden is believed to transform a home into a healing sanctuary and impart a sense of harmony with nature. As a valuable Feng Shui stone, prehnite is thought to assist in decluttering, enabling individuals to let go of possessions that are no longer necessary.
