- Prehnite Cast After Anhydrite With Calcite
- Cabinet, 15.0 x 7.5 x 6.8 cm
- Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
A superb, 3-dimensional piece with excellent display qualities, fingers sticking up and out ever which way. The fingers, to 3.5 cm in length, are very lustrous and translucent. A nice accenting calcite crystal of just under an inch, is in association. The bottom of the specimen exhibits signs of how these form as growths over the now-hollow casts after anhydrite crystals. This plate actually is one of the more visually imposing, but regrettably it has one broken tip (in the lower left) and so we have more than halved the price compared to the other pieces here - all cherry picked for minimal damage from a group of 500 pieces. Nevertheless, this is a fine specimen and now is priced at a relative bargain compared to others here, for the size and display aesthetics.
