This is a stone I had never hear or seen before I went to the Tucson Gem show. I love green, so I totally feel in love with the color of prehnite. It has an inner glow to it and reminds me a bit of moonstone. This stone is 14 X 10 mm and is called a checkerboard cushion cut. I have a ring design that I haven't made in years that I think it will look good in.
