Item Description

A spectacular CABINET piece of babingtonite, backed by prehnite and quartz. All of the babingtonite xtals are pristine - the point of attachment (the bottom and the backside; see last picture) has no xtals. There are two generations of babingtonite. The first generation consists of jet black, lusterous xtals to 1.8 cm. The second generation is micro xtals that can be found on the babingtonite, prehnite, and quartz. The backside has more prehnite and less babingtonite. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON, valued $750-900, from finds of 2008-2009.
