Aris: Natrolite not Apophyllite

I think the apophyllites in picture and are natrolites. All crystals show the flat pyramids, typical for natrolite. Apophyllites have a much more steeper pyramid.

Could also use higher f-stop and longer exposure to improve DOF... always difficult with mini/micro photography, but, why post blurry point-focus pictures as a reference?
