Prehnite Ps. Laumontite
Large Cabinet, 19.8 x 10.4 x 8.0 cm
Malad, Mumbai (Bombay), India
Gorgeous, pastel green prehnite has replaced crystals of Laumontite that had sprayed out from the center of this radial cluster. It is now completely made up of translucent, apple-green prehnite and is in remarkable, near-pristine condition. This is a spectacular large specimen resembling similar old material found in the Lonavala quarry some 20-25 years ago, but in this case it is from a new find at a different locality. This is one of the larger specimens of good quality, from the find.
