Cavansite on Stilbite
Thumbnail, 2.7 x 2.6 x 1.8 cm
Wagholi Quarries, Pune District, Maharashtra, India
Gorgeous spray of blue, bladed Cavansite on crystalline Stilbite. The balance and aesthetics are superb, as you can see from the pics. When do you ever see a cavansite THUMBNAIL so balanced and fine? Although big specimens are abundant, I just cannot recall the last time I was floored by a thumbnail sized example. This is the best kind of thumbnail for a "common species" - when you can judge it a gorgeous, perfect specimen in balance and quality, that happens to be a thumbnail; and not just "a small specimen, " per se. Competitive-level!
