Mineral Specimen #5401    Benitoite, Joaquinite-(Ce), Neptunite, Natrolite, Crossite

Gem Mine, San Benito Co., California

Type Location

Dark blue colored Benitoite crystals which have been acid etched from massive, white colored Natrolite, some of which is still intact. The Benitoite crystals fluoresce a vivid blue under SW UV. There are a few, very small, orange colored Joaquinite-(Ce) crystals scattered across the surface. The location is also the type location for Joaquinite-(Ce). There is also one small Neptunite crystal and some unidentified, black colored, fibrous material present.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: Two of the crystals have chipped areas missing. This includes the largest crystal which has much of one face missing - but the termination is still intact. Many of the other crystals have internal cleaves, but all are terminated.
