Prehnite Cast After Anhydrite With Calcite
Miniature, 5.5 x 4.8 x 4.0 cm
Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
A spectacular large-miniature combo specimen, with fingers of very lustrous and translucent, light apple-green prehnite to 3 cm in length enhanced by a doubly-terminated, lustrous and translucent, colorless calcite crystal measuring 3 cm in length. I particularly like the way the largest prehnite finger is rotated away from the viewer while the calcite is rotated toward the viewer, making for depth of field. The bottom face clearly exhibits hollow casts of what once were anhydrite. Simply among the most aesthetic pieces here!
