Prehnite on Quartz
Miniature, 5.8 x 2.3 x 1.5 cm
Brandberg, Namibia
Ex. Charlie Key
You do not normally think of prehnite in and of itself as a top class mineral specimen, because the crystals don't usually get big and isolated. Well, they do from here! This translucent, pear-green doublet on matrix just glows! It has to be one of the most aesthetic prehnites I have seen, in this size!
