- Prehnite Cast After Anhydrite With Calcite
- Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
- Cabinet, 15.0 x 9.0 x 7.0 cm
A pretty plate of solid prehnite. Mostly nubby, short fingers of prehnite totally cover this plate. They are all very lustrous and translucent and of a light apple-green color. The largest finger reaches 3.5 cm in length, flat-laying. The bottom face shows evidence of hollow casts after anhydrite, upon which the prehnite formed. Tip-breaks, damage, to a few of the relatively minor prehnite tips in no way detracts from the specimen overall, but on close examination I do find them detracting and thus this is a much lower price on a big plate.
