This is a beautiful sample of Cavansite on a Matrix, a fairly sought-after mineral for collectors.

Cavansite's name is derived from its chemical composition, calcium vanadium silicate, is a deep blue hydrous calcium vanadium phyllosilicate mineral, occurring as a secondary mineral in basaltic and andesitic rocks along with a variety of zeolite minerals. Discovered in 1967 in Malheur County, Oregon, cavansite is a relatively rare mineral. It is polymorphic with the even rarer mineral, pentagonite.  It is most frequently found in Pune, India and in the Deccan Traps, a large igneous province.

A nice addition to an enthusiast's collection!
