Dallas Gem Mine (Benitoite Mine; Benitoite Gem Mine; Gem Mine), Dallas Gem Mine area, San Benito River headwaters area, New Idria District, Diablo Range, San Benito Co., California
Miniature, 3.6 x 2.4 x 1.2 cm
These may not be the largest benitoites you have seen (they measure to 0.8 cm), but the quality is superb, and they are in such a pretty arrangement on the white natrolite matrix; they have good luster and color, are translucent, and in perfect condition.
