Calcite on Cavansite
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.4 x 3.4 cm
Wagholi Quarry, near Poona, Maharashtra, India

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!
