Prehnite on Epidote
Diakon, Cercle de Boufalabe, Kayes Region, Mali
Miniature, 3.4 x 3.2 x 3.1 cm
A single sphere, measuring 3 cm across, of satiny lustered, translucent, apple green prehnite is aesthetically perched on lustrous, blackish green epidote crystals to 1.3 cm across. Superb quality prehnite, way beyond the norm for this locale.
