This amazing Pentagonite is from the Wagholi Quarries in the Pune District of Maharashtra State in India.  I think collectors now mainly associate Pentagonite with this locality and hence imagine this might be its type locality.  This is a wrong assumption however as it was first found in Oregon, USA, as was its dimorph, Cavansite.  But this stunner is from Wagholi with the electric blue Pentagonite forming a sculptural display of crystals with an overall height of 3.4 cm.  If measured to the lowest point of the Pentagonite, then 3.9 cm.  The vivid blue crystals display to perfection against a carpet of glassy white Stilbite micro-crystals covering a basalt matrix.  A gorgeous specimen of this relatively rare mineral.  The specimen is mounted on a square, clear acrylic base.
