Brandberg Prehnite

$ 135

A neat cluster of botryoidal prehnite crystals. The prehnite has great green colour and as a specimen it has a few small clear quartz crystals growing along its side.  It presents as a relatively flat specimen with minor matrix underneath.

The entire cluster is covered with sparkling analcime. Analcime is a rare zeolite sometimes found associated with Brandberg specimens. On this cluster the analcime looks like glistening dew covering the specimen with its enhanced lustre.
