- Benitoite (Huge Crystal)
- Gem Mine, San Benito County, California, USA
- Miniature, 3.3 x 3.0 x 1.7 cm
- Ex. Ken Rippere
This is a HUGE crystal for the species! It is nearly a complete floater with no visible points of attachment. This large benitoite crystal is included with crossite, and shows good color but just a trace of translucence. It is, however, lustrous on the surface. Ex. Ken Rippere collection.
