new year 2021
The Prehnites from Mail have been one of the best newer discoveries of recent years. The various diggings have produced tons of specimens but the top percentage of esthetic and undamaged pieces is quite small. This is a very choice piece with fine, lustrous undamaged Epidote crystals that are the matrix for two complete Prehnite balls. A neat sculptural specimen that looks great from several angles.
