cavansite | PLAINS of STONE
A more recent gem on the scene is Cavansite (named according to its components: CAlcium VANadium Silicate) was discovered in Malheur County Oregon in 1960. Most Cavansite today comes from India. This startling blue gem-stone is striking in its range and depth of its incredible color. In-spite of its potential value as Vanadium ore, Cavansite is quite rare making it a highly sought addition to private collections. Formations tend to be rather small and brittle and are generally found in custom jewelry or more commonly still ‘mounted’ in its native stone.
