Makki & Sami Makki, "Green apophyllite from Bidkin, Aurangabad, India", Mineralogical Record Vol. 39, No. 4 (July - August) 2008 pp 267-273 does not provide clarification as to the variety of Stilbite from here. I don't believe that there is a confirmed analysis of Stlbite-Na from here (Keith Compton).
