Specimen # 200146
Mineral: Prehnite, Calcite
Location: Upper New Street Quarry, Paterson, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA
Size: 9.8 x 8.8 x 4.8 cm


A sparkling green prehnite with balls and pillars of crystals. These forms are epimorphs after anhydrite, and hollows (where the anhydrite was) are visible from underneath the specimen, as well as at the back and on one side (shown in the fifth and sixth photos). The tiny individual prehnite crystals are sharp with good lustre and a nice green. A colourful cabinet specimen!
