California State Gem Mine (Benitoite Mine, Dallas Gem Mine), Santa Rita Peak, New Idria District, Diablo Range, San Benito County, California, USA
An attractive, classic specimen of benitoite and neptunite crystals from the Gem Mine, which has produced the world’s finest know crystals. A fine display of lustrous red-black prismatic terminated crystals of neptunite lavishly decorate the display face of the specimen, with scattered crystals of translucent triangular blue benitoite crystals. The crystals display beautifully on a contrasting white colored natrolite matrix, a very aesthetic mineral specimen.
