Neptunite from this small deposit, now essentially mined out, is literally the world's supply of great specimens. At the termination of the horizonal neptunite, there is a tiny, perfect benitoite perched. This is a totally unique piece that has long been well-known, from both the Minette and then the Halpern collections. It is complete 360 degrees and stunningly elegant - the photos say it all. I consider it one of the finest miniatures of the species. In person, it has a fabulous luster as well. (Minette label included). Comes with a custom lucite base for safe, upright, ideal display.
