Cavansite stalactite with Stilbite
Wagholi Quarry, near Pune, Maharashtra Province, India
Miniature, 4.7 x 1.5 x 1.4 cm

Stacked clusters of lustrous and translucent, rich neon blue cavansite, to 1.5 cm across, have formed a stalactite-like growth. Such stalactites of cavansite are rare, and this is a large one! It is also a floater, and complete all around! with no damage! The specimen is accented by pearlescent stilbite crystals, to 6 mm in length, which are artfully emplaced around the cavansite. In the midst of a crowd of cavansite specimens produced by this quarry, this one really stands out as something unique.
