A cluster of opaque but beautifully deep blue cavansite sits atop a fluffy carpet of snow-white mordenite. This in turn rests on a brown basalt matrix. The cavansite groups is rather large for the species, about 2.7 cm across. The cavansite is pristine; no damage is seen. Displays quite nicely on its basalt stand. Or, one could probably remove the cavansite from the matrix and have a very nice thumbnail. I like this one as it is, however.
