Item Description

A few fine quality aggregates of rich blue Cavansite with Stilbite on matrix. The largest Cavansite group mesaures 15 mm across. Very little damage and a very showy piece of the beautiful and often under appreciated material. The best Cavansite specimens in the world come from this locality, and if it wasn't for Wagholi, very few people would even recognize Cavansite as a species. These specimens may be plentiful now, but eventually this locality will no longer produce these specimens, and they will become very difficult to find on the market, making them a valuable and worthwhile species for collectors.
