Prehnite Epimorph (Soetwater, South Africa)
Soetwater, Calvinia, Northern Cape, South Africa. 70mm x 40mm.
These epimorph "angel wing" prehnites where found on a farm in the Soetwater region in the 1970's. The common thought is that the prehnite grew over calcites that where at a later stage dissolved leaving these incredibly cubic shapes. Often one would also find small amethyst associated with these epimorphs, this specimen has a small amethyst that has also been covered with the prehnite. Packed shipping weight +- 80gr.
