Prehnite- gemmy large crystals
Merelani Hills, Lelatama Mountains, Simanjiro District
Manyara Region, Tanzania
5.8 x 4.6 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $520
Spring 2020

A large rosette of sharp Prehnite crystals that are translucent to transparent, lustrous and colorful. Green exterior with a more yellow core area, a fine example from the amazing finds at Merelani, Tanzania. This area is incredibly rich mineral wise, it is best known of course as the source of Tanzanite but also incredible fine Diopside and these unusual but beautiful Prehnites. Most of the Merelani Prehnites have considerable damage or bruising, this piece is a more choice example, far better than average, with esthetic and distinct crystals. In excellent condition except at the bottom where this was attached.
