Cavansite, Mordenite
Wagholi Quarry, Wagholi, Pune District (Poonah District), Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 4.7 x 3.0 x 2.7 cm
A fine, two-edged cluster of saw-toothed, royal-blue cavansite blades are aesthetically set on a contrasting, bulbous, 3-dimensional matrix of snow-white, soft to the touch, elastic, mordenite. Cavansite and mordenite combination specimens from the Wagholi Quarry are uncommon. This is a good one, with the uncommon bladed cavansite varietal.
