Prehnite Pseudomorph After Calcite
Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 6.8 x 2.6 cm
Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India
A druse of pastel-green, translucent prehnite, has replaced tabular, well formed crystals of calcite to 4.5 cm across. Highly aesthetic, and stark in its form, this is a fine example of this rare Indian pseudomorph style. All of this is on a thin crust of matrix that has also been changed to prehnite!
