Over the last couple of decades, literally thousands of CAVANSITE specimens have been extracted from the Dhout Quarry in Ahamadnagar, near Poonah, India. The best cavansite from this quarry is a richly colored, saturated electric blue, which is reportedly caused by the chromophore vanadium. The balls are usually sitting on a matrix of white STILBITE crystals. This significant and large specimen came from one of my Indian dealer friends who was set up at the Howard Johnson venue at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show.
