Prehnite, Laumontite
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.7 x 5.3 cm
Northshore Mine (Peter Mitchell Mine; Reserve Mine; Babbitt Mine), Babbitt, Mesabi Range, St. Louis Co., Minnesota, USA
An EXCELLENT specimen from a very UNCOMMON Minnesota locality of sparkly off-white to light rust-brown, columnar prehnite pseudomorphing laumontite on matrix from the Knife River. A very small find of these came out several years ago and this is the BEST and LARGEST of the two specimens that we obtained. A couple of broken crystals certainly do not impair this piece in any way. 6.4 x 5.7 x 5.3 cm
