Cabinet, 15.8 x 9.2 x 7.8 cm
Fanwood Quarry (Fanwood Stone Crushing and Quarry Co. Quarry; Fanwood Crushed Stone Co. Quarry; Scotch Plains Quarry; Weldon Quarry), Watchung, Somerset Co., New Jersey, USA
This is a LARGE and SIGNIFICANT specimen from a very exciting find not too long back in New Jersey, of prehnite that has replaced the original glauberite crystals, retaining their form. This one has it all, the best features of the best specimens from this find: bright mint-green color, sharp crystals, and fine coverage. These pseudos had been found before there, but rarely in this quality. 15.8 x 9.2 x 7.8 cm
