A fine specimen hosts a magnificent, isolated Pentagonite "tree" of 2.2cm x 1.8cm from Wagholi Quarry, India, a world renowed locale where top quality specimen of cavansite and pentagonite is found.  It is incredibly rare to find such a large, significant single crystal of Pentagonite in "tree" shape nestled into a sparkly bed of Stilbite and basalt.  This is one of the finest examples of the species I know of, from this locale.  In the most desired vivid blue color, it is sparkly and beautiful!

 

Due to expansion of localities around, mines in this area are almost on the verge of closing down.  Fine and undamaged specimen like this is very sort after as damages to the specimen has always occurred during mining process where explosives are used.
