Prehnite Cast After Anhydrite
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 7.5 x 7.5 cm
Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
A cluster of several very lustrous, translucent, light apple-green, fingers of prehnite to 4.5 cm in length. These are all enclosing hollow casts after anhydrite, including one that transverses the length of a flat-lying, rather wide finger. The piece presents a large and showy display face, with crystals shooting out in all directions.
