Item Description

An attractive group of gemmy/translucent "water"-green color spherical Prehnite aggregates, which comprised of small, "fan"-like blades. I have not seen many specimens from this locality recently, and this one is good by any worldwide standard for Prehnite along with the locality value. The best aspect of the piece is the fact that the Prehnite is rather lustrous for the locality, as most of them are rather dull. The largest Prehnite aggregate measures 2.1 cm across.
