Babingtonite, Prehnite

Specimen # 200144
Mineral: Babingtonite, Prehnite
Location: Babingtonite, Prehnite, Qiaojia Co., Yunnan, China
Size: 9.4 x 6.2 x 2.3 cm


This babingtonite is from the find that redefined the species – the babingtonites from Qiajoia are without question the world’s best. This piece features beautiful sharp crystals of babingtonite up to 2 cm, with well-defined terminations. The babingonites contrast with spherical aggregates of light green prehnite crystals. The prehnite crystals themselves are sharp and lustrous, providing a sparkling background and a striking overall effect. In excellent condition, no damage. A superb babingtonite!
