Prehnite - Epimorph after Calcite ( South Africa)
Soetwater, Northern Cape, South Africa. 70mm x 90mm x 30mm.
The Soetwater mine was known for optically clear Calcite. At a stage these Epimorphs where found and subsequently all collected in a short space of time. We have recently been back to the mine in search of some of the small Amethyst that also came out and can confirm the mine has been completely rehabilitated and overgrown with the natural vegetation in the area. These speciens are without any doubt a piece of history that will not be repeated from this deposit.
