A survivor from the person who brought out a unique and classic find, now 15 years in the past! Several nearly symmetrical spheres of attractive, translucent, lime green Prehnite are clustered on this piece associated with some stubby, prismatic, green Epidote crystals. The Prehnite spheres are all about an inch across and are in perfect condition save one toward the back that is split down the middle and this hemisphere shows off its gemmy center and the radial structure of the Prehnite. The Epidote crystals are loosely clustered at the front and on the bottom of the piece and measure 1.5 to 3.5 cm in length and are also intergrown with the Prehnite. This is a nicely balanced small cabinet piece. Rock was the main importer for this find, and kept a number of excellent pieces... this was a personal collection keeper from a shipment of about 1000 kgs in 2006.
