Item Description

A beautiful, two-sided combo specimen of gemmy quartz crystals aesthetically scattered and set on a crust of botryoidal, translucent prehnite of a gorgeous light mint-green. The two minerals complement one another beautifully on this specimen! Good prehnites are common now from Mali and to some extent from New Jersey, but NOT from China! The periphery wear on one side and the trivial termination wear to one of the secondary quartz crystals is certainly not a detraction, as you can see.. rare
