Wow! This is a unique one. Pentagonite, a rare Vanadium silicate mineral and the dimorph of the more common cavansite, is essentially only known in high-quality crystals from one locality, the Wagholi quarries in Poona, India. This is a highly aesthetic "floater" cluster of pentagonite crystals featuring an absolutely enormous over 5 cm(!) crystal forming a "spear" with a "crown" of smaller radiating crystals. While highly fragile, this specimen is amazingly beautiful, and can be safely displayed with care. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
