- Prehnite on Epidote
- Miniature, 5.4 x 4 x 3.6 cm
- Diakon, Cercle de Boufalabe, Kayes Region, Mali
Two intergrown spheres of satiny luster, translucent, apple green prehnite crystals measuring 4 cm across, are aesthetically perched on lustrous, olive green epidote crystals, to 1.7 cm in length. Visually, this resembles a snail, albeit a very pretty one. Complete all around! This is "just prehnite" perhaps, but is a remarkable aesthetic mineral specimen.
