From: Imilchil, Er Rachida Province, Morocco
Size: 4.0 x 5.6 x 3.2cm
This mineral specimen looks like a hemp rope knot, but it is actually prehnite with hematite impurities which give it the tan, rope-like coloring. What makes this extra aesthetic are the red quartz crystals which are also hematite-included, hence the red color. The prehnite crystal forms a knot-like structure that is unique to the specimens from this location. This was found in late 2016, and it is one of a very small number of specimens of this quality. The majority of the specimens from the find are plain green prehnite, but a small number of the specimens have the hematite inclusions giving them that really unique rope-knot appearance.
The specimen comes with the labeled acrylic display base.
