Item Description

A very showy, two-edged cluster of saw-toothed, royal-blue cavansite blades are aesthetically set on a contrasting, bulbous, 3-dimensional matrix of snow-white, soft to the touch, elastic, mordenite. Cavansite and mordenite combination specimens from the famous Wagholi Quarry are uncommon. This is an especially good one, with the uncommon bladed cavansite varietal, even with the bit of contacting.
