Prehnite with Amethyst (Northern Cape, South Africa)
Soetwater, Calvinia, Northern Cape, South Africa. 40mm x 35mm x 20mm.
This discovery was made in the 1970's, the Prehnite is a epimorph after Calcite and generally shaped in "angel wings" a small area also yielded the Prehnite with associated very pale amethyst. The site has been completely reclaimed and barring a few dumps of gravel one would never have imagined this area had ever been mined. Estimated shipping weight including packaging etc +/- 90gr.
