Cavansite, Stilbite-Ca
Wagholi Quarry, Wagholi, Pune District (Poonah District), Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 11.4 x 7.9 x 3.6 cm
Balls of deep blue-green cavansite are beautifully intergrown with pearly stilbites along the edge of the host matrix. As you can see, this piece is unusually aesthetic, the way the cavansites and stilbites are isolated at the top of the piece rather than being randomly spread across a piece of matrix. Henry Minot specimen.
