This is a chunk of weathered prehnite, cut and polished on one surface to reveal the crystals within. The unpolished surface is rounded, weathered, and brown, showing no crystal indications. The polished surface, however, reveals that this is essentially a single large crystal (with multiple fractures). It is translucent but nearly transparent, and a pretty yet pale green. The polished surface is vitreous. One end of the specimen does exhibit a very interesting growth pattern, especially when using a loupe.
