Individual spheres of yellow Prehnite grown in and around flat crystals of white Calcite. This is one of the most beautiful Merelani Prehnites I've ever seen. A fibrous blue Tanzanite and small white crystals (Laumontite?) are attached to the backside. A floater with no points of attachment and little to no damage.

This is a very interesting Prehnite composed of an almost perfect sphere of solid Prehnite, like a translucent gumdrop, with larger crystals growing out of the sphere in various directions.

Spherical, mound-shaped Prehnite with large, chunky crystals. This is a very good one in terms of form, size, color, and quality. Nearly pristine with just a couple minor nicked crystal tips.

Solid, translucent yellow Prehnite with large, chunky crystals. This is a very good one with a little contacting on the left edge and a partial Tanzanite attached near the base, but the entire front display face is perfect undamaged large crystals. This grew against the flat surface of a large Calcite crystal and the backside is flat and smooth.

Translucent blue/green Prehnite crystals with both a color and form new with these late 2018 finds of Prehnite from Merelani. These recent Prehnite have rounded orb formations that morph out into flat bladed crystals. The color, a blue/green/yellow is also a little different than I've seen before in Merelani Prehnites. Undamaged.
