This specimen began as a spray of green and opaque epidote crystals which reach about 4 cm in length. Attached to one side of the epidote cluster is a 1.3 cm diameter, translucent and light minty green prehnite ball. All of this was encircled a later roughly spherical growth of light yellowish, translucent and lustrous stilbite. A nice association specimen for the locality. Except for the spot where the specimen was freed from the matrix there is no damage. Displays nicely either with or without a stand.
