Item Description

Outstanding, classic combination piece from the Goboboseb Mountains in Namibia. The wheel-shaped Prehnite cluster is superb - good luster, attractive mint-green color, and translucent. It is an amazing 2.8 cm across. Attached is a sharp white 2.3 cm Analcime crystal. A fantastic combination makes this stand out from the crowd of worldwide prehnite as a quite exceptional specimen! Both rest on euhedral Calcite and Quartz crystals. A first-class specimen for any collector, locality, species, or just for aesthetics. Charlie LOVED prehnite and had a large subcollection of the material. Valued $750-950
