A single, incomplete Cavansite cluster comprises this thumbnail piece. It shows considerable damage in one area that was likely caused through removal from its base- this damage enables one to see the compact, radial nature of the cluster. The crystals therein reach only 0.2" (5 mm) in length at most, and are too compact to easily study. All have the standard deep, aqua-blue color and pearly luster, and are likely transparent, though the cluster is only dimly translucent. There is no host rock present.
