This specimen features a single spherical cluster of cavansite and a dozen nice stilbite crystals on a basalt base with a druzy crust of more stilbite. The cavansite is excellent, as the deep blue crystals are individually transparent and have a vitreous luster. They are organized in clusters of smaller crystals, all of which appear to radiate from a point. In each cluster, the center crystals are longer, giving each grouping a tapered look. The larger stilbite crystals are also good, with a very white color and a pearly luster.
