This is one of the rare Prehnite "Rope Knot" specimens that was found in late 2016 in Imilchil, Morocco. The prehnite is a tan rope-like color instead of green due to the hematite impurities in the crystals. Often times the crystals grow in knotted forms, but this one formed a large perfect ball, still with a rope-like texture. The red on the back is a result of the hematite on the matrix material. These specimens are very rare and unusual, and are some of the most interesting prehnites in the world. 

The specimen comes with the labeled acrylic display base.
