Prehnite on Epidote

ID: CC4442

A great specimen of Prehnite on crystals of Epidote from the now classic location of Bendougou (Bendoukou), Mali. Two well formed globules of translucent green Prehnite measuring to 2.4mm in diameter, have grown on two thickly bladed chisel terminated crystals of Epidote , measuring to 7.1cm, with a dark green-black colouration. One of the Epidote crystals is seen grown at an angle from the 'back' of the larger crystal. A great specimen from the location.
