Ex. Charlie Key
A superb tree-shaped, 3-dimensional specimen with GEMMY, lustrous crystals of prehnite to 7mm. The sparkle emanating from the cluster of crystals is beautiful, as is the pure orange color. I could not decide which I like better from this or the last one. The previous piece has more color impact, but this has better aesthetics. They both have the best quality gemmy, lustrous, elongated crystals that were found.
