Cavansite with Stilbite
Wagholi, Pune District, Maharashtra, India
Large Cabinet, 26.2 x 16.5 x 3.6 cm

The photo with the hand for scale says it all - this is a stunningly large and pristine museum-display sized plate of Cavansite, in gorgeous isolated blue balls on matrix. The contrast is striking, with the blue set against sparkly white stilbite crystals! I have never had one so good, and so large, in 20 years of looking and waiting. Pristine, as well....it is a shocking show of color, and there is literally no color like this in the mineral world. The true color is a unique blue saturation like the fake copper sulphate crystals some of us used to grow in childhood chemistry kits. It is incredibly difficult to capture in a photo, and in fact perhaps impossible. In person, the color has another level of higher appeal. Comes with custom lucite display base
