About artist/note:

Prehnite is not a rare mineral, but its brittleness makes it a very difficult stone to cut. Modern cutting techniques have now allowed more of this interesting looking stone to be available on the market. It has a unique appearance because of its soft green coloration and interior hazy glow, and prices have slowly been increasing as awareness of its use in jewellery increases.
