Prehnite Cast After Anhydrite
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.1 x 5.2 cm
Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
A single, very lustrous, translucent, light apple-green prehnite finger towers majestically above smaller fingers of prehnite. Associated with the prehnite are lustrous and translucent, colorless crystals of calcite, to 8 mm in length. It appears that the specimen is a complete floater with no visible points of attachment as the bottom shows minute crystallization as well. A fine, very dramatic piece with, surprisingly, no repairs.
