A single, complete, glassy, transparent to translucent Analcime crystal sits androidly on a Prehnite cluster and has another lovely Prehnite group adjacent to it. The lustrous Analcime crystal is just sublime as it is colorless to white and mostly gem around the exterior and part way into the interior of the crystal! The adjacent Prehnite cluster is a stout, barrel-like cluster of of radial, mint-green crystals and measures 1.8 cm; it provides great balance and aesthetics to the piece. A small, 1 cm, off-white, translucent Calcite is present in one corner for added interest. This is a nicely composed combination miniature from Goboboseb. Analcime is seldom seen here, particularly in this sharp, textbook quality.
