Cavansite, Mordenite
Wagholi Quarry, Wagholi, Pune District (Poonah District), Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 4.4 x 4.1 x 3.0 cm
An EXCELLENT and UNCOMMON cavansite combination specimen from the famed Wagholi Quarry of India. A showy cluster of gemmy and lustrous, royal-blue, BLADED cavansite crystals is jauntily perched on soft-to-the-touch, snow-white mordenite on basalt matrix. Nearly all Wagholi cavansite is found on stilbite and bladed cavansite is not that common, so this is an exceptional combination specimen from this well-known locality.
