Cavansite In Natural Vug
Wagholi Quarry, near Poona, Maharashtra, India
Cabinet, 10.0 x 8.7 x 7.1 cm
A basaltic vug coated with tiny clusters of gray stilbite acts as the host for several clusters of deep teal blue, lustrous, cavansite. The largest cluster measures 2.0 cm across. I particularly like this example of how we get crystals in vugs, whad had room for crystals to grow.
