Neptunite in Natrolite with Joaquinite and Crossite

Specimen ID: 10N-U5F

Title
Neptunite in Natrolite with Joaquinite and Crossite
Locality
As recorded:
Benitoite gem mine, Iridia, San Benito Co., California, United States
Dimensions
60mm x 43mm
Description
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 60's.
