Prehnite Cast After Anhydrite
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.6 x 3.0 cm
Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
DRAMATIC complete-allaround specimen with somehow a more powerful visual impact than the other pieces here with isolated crystals. This is an aesthetic prehnite specimen where a single, very lustrous, translucent, light apple-green finger rises majestically between two smaller fingers. Additionally, ther are two lustrous, translucent, colorless, calcite crystals, to 1.25 cm in length; the larger of the two being doubly-terminated. A view up the bottom clearly exhibits hollow casts that used to be anhydrite.
