Neptunite in Natrolite with Joaquinite and Crossite
stock #AC- B10-200
Benitoite gem mine, Iridia, San Benito Co.
California, United States
6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $160


Great contrast with sharp and lustrous Neptunites against the white natrolite. Dozens of micro crystals are on board with lots of the rare mineral Joaquinite. The largest neptunites reach 2 CM and show reddish highlights with good lighting. Most crystals are perfect and terminated, but there is damage to 2 crystals. These could be removed to make a "perfect" specimen but they are not bothersome to me and the overall impact is fine. Older material collected in the 60s.
