CAVANSITE WITH STILBITE

Electric blue cavansite formed in a long cluster wrapping around a protrusion of stilbite covered host rock. The cavansite shoots outwards in all directions, and at the end of the grouping sits a spherical growth that the species is known for. Looking into small pockets, one can see that the cavansite growth continues deeper out of sight. It's highly uncommon to find this much of it together in one continuous grouping, and though it’s hard to measure I’d warrant it measures to at least 8 cm. Together with a backdrop of light gray microcrystalline stilbite and some larger stilbite crystals, this piece makes for a phenomenal display. As with a lot of cavansite from these finds, the color is difficult to capture on camera, and pops out a lot more when viewing in person; below I've gone ahead ahead and attached the video which I think best encapsulates what it looks like to see this specimen in the sunlight. This medium size cabinet piece is truly world class in terms of visuals and would make a gorgeous addition to any collection.
