Three interconnected, curving and lustrous Prehnite crystals. Although many other localities produce good Prehnite, they are usually in rounded clusters or platy masses, not distinct individual crystals such as this. Nowhere, to my knowledge, produces as good crystals as those found at the Jeffrey Mine, but they are not well known because there just aren't many available, in fact this is only the second one I have owned. Ex. Charlie Key.

Glassy and gemmy Euclase with superb blue color. It's actually a short, wide crystal with the contact along the long side, and can be displayed this way as an undamaged crystal. Because the long side is a smooth, flat cleave, it can be displayed vertically too, which is how Irv did.
