Item Description

These Pentagonite specimens are truly one of the most exciting recent finds from the Deccan Trappe in India. Undoubtedly the very finest Pentagonite specimens in the world occur at this locality. This piece features aesthetic, beautiful, sharp, intense neon blue, "tree"-shaped, aggregates of Pentagonite which are dusted with small, pale yellow Calcite rhombs. A very showy and good quality specimen of this extremely rare (and underappreciated) material. These specimens represent the best of the species, and eventually will no longer be found.
