Wilde, looking just a tad rakish, is sculpted from pieces of nephrite jade, thulite
, Guatemalan jade, larvikite, and black granite; opposite him are two stone pillars engraved with Wilde's witticisms.
A massive green variety enclosing ruby crystals at nearby Longido has been called anyolite (after the Maasai word for "green"), and a massive, opaque, pink zoisite from Greenland has sometimes been called thulite
, but these terms should likewise be avoided in describing Merelani crystals.
It has also produced (as mentioned) brown opaque andradite garnets, globular prehnite, colorless and transparent apophyllite-(KF), stilbite, stellerite, chabazite-Ca, dark vesuvianite in acicular crystals, zoisite (as the pink variety "thulite
"), albite, clinochlore, antigorite, nephrite, chrysotile, rutile, galena, pyrite, magnetite, chromite, diopside, aragonite, fine yellow calcite and quartz (andradite, calcite and quartz are very rare at the famous Jeffrey mine at Asbestos).
