Cavansite---Cavansite-Clusters-Extra---NO-Matrix-05Cavansite is a hydrous calcium vanadium oxide silicate with an orthorhombic crystal system which occurs in prismatic or tabular crystals in rosettes, sometimes in association with other Zoisite materials such as Stillbite or Apophyllite. Its name is derived from its chemical composition, calcium vanadium silicate, and was



discovered in 1967 in Malheur County, Oregon: Cavansite is a relatively rare mineral. The best specimens come from Poona India and are a deep ultramarine blue. The natural Cavansite spheres became detached from their matrix during quarrying operations. The spheres, when split, reveal the radial starburst pattern that is so compelling.
