ID: CC12952

A most attractive specimen of the calcium vanadium silicate, Cavansite, forming five spherical aggregates of electric-blue crystals perched over a flat carpet of colourless to pale flesh-pink Stilbite crystals. The underlying matrix is Deccan Trap amygdaloidal basalt.  From the Steinbruch Complex, 15 km NE of Pune (Poona) in India, the largest Cavansite sphere measures 1.6 cm in diameter.  A great example of this most attractive and rare species.
