Located west of the National Highway going to Pune. Mahodari belongs to system of quarries around Nasik town. This area is very rich in cavities with colorless apophyllite (dominating tabular habits) and pink/orange stilbite (Tomasz Praszkier information, see messageboard at http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-156911.html)

Note: It would appear that the spelling of this locality perhaps should be Mohadari, per various web references, including Google earth.
