Science & History
Benitoite is a rare blue barium titanium silicate mineral, found in hydro thermally altered serpentinite. Benitoite fluoresces under short wave ultraviolet light, appearing bright blue to bluish white in color. The more rarely seen clear to white benitoite crystals fluoresce red under long-wave UV light.
It was first described in 1907 by George D. Louderback, who named it "Benitoite" for its occurrence near the headwaters of the San Benito River in San Benito County, California.
Many other rare minerals are found in matrix with benitoite, and some are listed below.
Neptunite is a black crystal named after Neptune, the Roman god of the sea. In minerals from San Benito county, neptunite grows beautiful crystals.
Natrolite forms in a thin layer of white crystals on the surface on crossite. High in sodium, this sodium aluminum silicate is a zeolite, a mineral species that can be a catalyst and exchanges ions readily.
Crossite is a greyish blue mineral in the amphibole group. It has a hardness of 6 and is a host mineral on which natrolite, neptunite, and benitoite are found.
