Prehnite, Epidote, Quartz
Hongquizhen Quarry, Meigu Co., Liangshan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 5.9 x 3.8 cm
Do not let the flood of prehnites from Mali make you jaded about good ones from other localities - such as this one from China, not known for quantities of good prehnites. This translucent, light green one is cradled beautifully in a matrix of epidote and epidote-included quartz crystals. The prehnite ball measures just under 3 cm.
