Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 5.0 x 2.4 cm
Wagholi Quarry, near Poona, Maharashtra, India

A rather large, 4 cm across, cluster of deep blue cavansite is perched high on a matrix of pure, white, massive, stilbite. The cavansite blades are unusually well-formed here, with individual crystal edges exceeding 1 cm as they erupt from the cluster, and terminating in sharp points. This quality is NOT common for cavansite, no matter how common you may think cavansite overall to be. The cavansite is both lustrous and translucent (as individual crystals). The back side is contacted where the specimen was removed from its original matrix, however, the display side of the piece is perfect and extremely dramatic. BETTER In PERSON!
