UTE-VG9Prehnite, Calcite

Prospect Park Quarry, Prospect Park, Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA

Dimensions: 7.6 cm x 5.1 cm x 5 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 2 cm

Greenish yellow Prehnite spheres up to 2.0 cm (3/4") on Calcite. Collected from the zone above and to the left of Diapir "Z". Legend has it that this piece was spotted about 20+ feet above grade and was the last remnant of a pocket still partially attached to the wall. It was "collected" by throwing rocks and hammers at it until it fell, since there was no other possible way to get to it. Miraculously after well over an hour it finally dislodged and fell the full 20 feet to the ground without any damage. This specimen motivated additional collecting in the area above the diapir when it was still high above grade and as a last ditch effort when the diapir area had been back filled up to this level. Very few pieces are known to have come out of this level as it was only accessible for a very short time (perhaps less than a week) while the diapir was being buried. As can be seen from the photo, the spherical habit of this prehnite is in stark contrast to the prehnite "fingers" (casts after anhydrite) that were collected in abundance from the interior of the diapir.
