Cavansite is a rare Electric blue (to rarely greenish-blue) coloured mineral known only from a few localities in Brazil, India, New Zealand and USA.

 

Its name was derived from its chemical composition, calcium vanadium silicate. This species forms small rosettes or clusters of radiating bright blue crystals that are often found on a matrix of fine white to grey coloured Stilbite crystals. It can also be found in association with Okenite.

 

The photos were taken in bright sunlight to bring out their best colours.
