Prehnite Fine Mineral Specimens from Tanzania
Prehnite is a very common mineral that seldom forms large, beautiful crystals. These unique pastel blue crystals, to 1 inch in size, came out of a single pocket in the Merelani tanzanite mine in the summer of 2013.
From finds of the fall 2012, this is a beautiful lot of colorless quartz crystals featuring unusual, sharp phantoms in their tips caused by inclusions of the green mica species, Fuchsite.
