Big cluster of glassy yellow Prehnite, bright and glassy crystals in good sized piece for the find. Well formed, distinct crystals that separate out from the main cluster.

Terminated Quartz crystal that is blanketed in translucent yellow Prehnite. Unusual and the only one like from the find. Unfortunately the termination of the quartz is imperfect, though it does not appear to be damage as there are no fracture surfaces and there are bits of Graphite grown in the indentations, and small termination faces mixed in within the irregular surfaces.
