Cavansite with Calcite on Stilbite
Wagholi Quarries, Wagholi, Pune Dist., Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 4.4 x 3.5 x 2.6 cm

We've seen a lot of cavansite since they started coming out in the 1990s, but this adorable little piece really stands out from the crowd. This miniature features a superb cluster of deepest, royal blue cavansite with the nice sparkly and iridescent luster, perched on a matrix of stilbite. Tiny, gemmy white calcite crystals accent the cavansite and matrix like glitter, which is very unusual. This is a super choice miniature, with exceptional balance and aesthetics. The double-cluster atop is 2.7 cm across.
