An EXCELLENT and OUTSTANDING specimen from the famous and now-closed Dallas Gem Mine of California. Lustrous, partially gemmy, indigo-blue benitoite crystals to 1.2 cm RICHLY cover the snow-white natrolite covered matrix on this super piece. A sharp, highly lustrous, 1.3 cm, neptunite crystal on the edge of the specimen is a very nice accent. This beautiful specimen is essentially pristine, with only trivial edgewear. Very fine, older material with several display possibilities.
