Description:A fantastic miniature Prehnite specimen from this lesser known locality in Morocco. I've seen Prehnites from Imilchil, but they are noted for the sharp crystal habit, and not these complex aggregates. This attractive piece features a fantastic soft green-yellow "flower" or "rosette"-shaped group of Prehnite measuring 3.3 cm across on Quartz matrix The "rose" comprises dozens of individual orthorhombic crystals, but the end result is gorgeous! If you collect miniatures, display specimens, worldwide Prehnites or minerals of Morocco, don't miss out on this excellent piece. No damage! Valued at $700.
