47.39 ct. Benitoite in Matrix Cabochon

Color:  Various Clarity:  Opaque
Origin:  San Benito Co., California Cut:  Rectangular Tablet
Treatments:  None Measurements:  42.2 x 21.2 x 4.6 mm

These always make for interesting pieces - polished pieces of gemmy Benitoite in the classic Natrolite matrix.  This example is quite remarkable; a cluster of beautiful gemmy crystal is framed by the stark white Natrolite while the entire piece is framed by the grayish mineral Crossite.  There is a spectacular little cavity of Natrolite with tiny druzy crystals running just above the Benitoite.  Given the overall size of the piece, this one is extremely impressive.  Very few of these are available and almost none at this quality.
