Here is an amazing miniature specimen of Benitoite and Neptunite crystals. This is a wonderfully aesthetic specimen of these two minerals. This specimen comes from The Benitoite Gem Mine, now called the California State Gem Mine, in San Benito County. California. It is the only place in the world that these mineral can be found together, and the only place in the world that gem and specimen quality benitoite is found.

What this specimen lacks in size, it more than makes up for in the quality of the two main benitoite crystals. Although there are micro benitoite and neptunite crystals present, the two main, larger benitoite crystals are very gemmy. This piece is being sold as a specimen, but there are a few small gemstones could be cut from these two crystals if they were to be removed. I only state this to show the quality of these two crystals.

The specimen measures approx. 3.48 cm x 2.34 cm x 1.03 cm thick.


This specimen is mounted on an acrylic base with mineral tack for easy removal and comes with an Identification card.
