    Prehnite on Calcite
    Dahisar Quarry, Mumbai District, Maharashtra, India

    "A ten inch specimen of blocky but tabular calcite crystals completely covered with small pale green prehnite crystals. ?"
    - Rock H. Currier

    A pastel geometry lesson in a box ... a BIG box. Very similar to the specimen RHC 6927, since it came from the same quarry - but this one is a LOT larger: it's HUGE! That's a one inch bar in the bottom of the picture.
    Overall Measurements: 10.0 x 10.0 x 4.0 inches (25.4 x 25.4 x 10.2 cm)
    Offered at no reserve

    Provenance: RHC #6939, acquired 1998

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
