Item number: 22180

This specimen shows a well formed, complete, light blue benitoite crystal exposed on matrix with a couple of small , orange joaquinite crystals and very small neptunite crystals. The bigger benitoite crystal faces have a frosted luster while the bevels and pinacoid are shiny and lustrous. Such a nice mineral!
