Detailed Description

Sharp, lustrous crystals of  hydroxyapophyllite-(K) on sea-green prehnite from the Luck Leesburg Plant. These are beautiful crystals – three larger, and many smaller. In good condition overall – two of the larger crystals are incomplete due to contacts (in the first photo, the left and centre), and one large crystal (on the right in that photo) is in super condition. The photos include views from the front and back. From the Virginia suite of the John S. White Collection (catalogue no. 23-2-5).
