This gorgeous pair of rutilated prehnites was my favourite from a full strand of gemstones, they're rutilated with dark green on a pale green, translucent base. Prehnite is believed to have calming properties. Curiously enough it's the first stone to ever be named after a person; Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn (1733-1785), commander of the military forces of the Dutch colony at the Cape of Good Hope from 1768 to 1780.
NB: The exact pair pictured has already been sold, and you will receive a similar pair of the same design. Due to the nature of rutilated prehnite no two stones will be alike, but you will get a matched pair of prehnite stones. You can pick your favourite pair from the last picture and leave it as a note upon purchase, or let me pick for you. :)
