Prehnite on Epidote (Floater!)
Bendoukou, Sandare Distr., Kayes Region, Mali
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.5 x 2.1 cm
Wow! This is a truly amazing competition miniature. A complete botryoid of light green, translucent, prehnite has grown on a well terminated and lustrous very dark green epidote crystal. Each of the members is 2.5 cm across. 360 degrees complete and perfect! The aesthetics of this specimen are mind boggling. NOTE: NOT ZINN - just got into the pile by accident with some things that were being cleaned. But, here it is so have at it!
