Two beautifully blue and utterly pristine cavansite clusters sit on a sparkling carpet of tiny stilbite crystals. All of this is hosted by a brown basalt matrix. The largest cavansite group measures 2 cm across.  The color contrast is wonderful. Needs no stand for display, as the sawn matrix provides a flat base. (The basalt matrix is quite tough, so a diamond saw is often used to extra specimens without damage; hence the saw cuts, which are quite common on these specimens. The saw cuts are not visible when displayed as shown.)
