A jackstraw arrangement of translucent, light apple-green prehnite fingers, to 6 cm in length, that exhibits evidence of several hollow casts of what were once anhydrite underneath. One, in particular, transverses the length of the longest crystal. The specimen just is a little weaker on luster and color than others here but is a fascinating and fine example for quality and form, with no damage and a 360-degree display angle. If it came out of a museum with an old label, you would not be surprised as it so well emulates the old-style pieces found here long ago
