Prehnite on Epidote "Lollipop"
Diakon, Cercle de Boufalabe, Kayes Region, Mali
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 4.1 x 3.5 cm
An almost circular botryoid of translucent, apple green prehnite, measuring 3.5 cm in length, is aesthetically perched on lustrous, dark blackish green epidote crystals, to 4.6 cm in length. Just lovely! It looks like a lollipop! This fine prehnite specimen from this particular recent find and source is MUCH better than previous lots for the locale for color, translucency, and form.
