An excellent specimen of smoky olive to creamy apple green Prehnite with rhombohedral white to pale apricot Calcite from the Rauscherm├╝hle quarry at Niederkirchen in the Rhineland-Palatinate of Germany. This famous locality is now a nature reserve where collecting is strictly banned. The botryoidal Prehnite forms undulating druses to around 2 cm diameter within an open vug of a gabbro-diabase matrix. A showy cabinet specimen and fine example from this quarry.
