Calcite on Cavansite
Wagholi Quarry, near Poona, Maharashtra, India
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.4 x 3.4 cm
The unusual sky blue color, of the nestled cavansite rosette, is imparted by the large number of small, colorless, lustrous, and transparent calcite crystals which cover the cavansite. All of this is in a vug of lustrous, ivory colored druse of stilbite. Unusual!
