Prehnite on Epidote
Diakon, Cercle de Boufalabe, Kayes Region, Mali
Cabinet, 13.6 x 7.0 x 5.7 cm
One of my favorite prehnites, ever! This elegant piece is not a stalactite per se. It is a stacked of intergrown spheres. They are all superbly translucent, and lustrous! It is over 13 cm in length. The matrix is lustrous, blackish green epidote in crystals, to 3.2 cm in length. Unusual and quirky! Complete all around.
