Stilbite is perhaps the most popular zeolite mineral for collectors. Stilbite is a handsome specimen with its pearly luster and sometimes colorful pink tints.

Apophyllite is more often than not the star attraction and also 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.

Apophyllite is said to promote introspection into one's own behavior and the correction of imbalances or flaws that are perceived. This is a stone of truth, bringing recognition of one's true self and allowing that to be shown to the world. Apophyllite is said to have a calming effect, and to effectively reduce stress, releasing mental blockages and negative thought patterns. Apophyllite is also said to release suppressed emotion, to overcome anxiety, worries and fears. It calms apprehensions and allows uncertainty to be tolerated.

Stilbite is said to be a highly creative stone that opens the intuition and carries a loving and supportive vibration in an endeavor.  It grounds spiritual energy and helps to manifest intuitive thought into action.
