17NRM16: Fan-shaped aggregates of bright, light green Prehnite crystals forming globular groups implanted on an ophitic rock matrix. From a classic Spanish mineral deposit very close to the well-known sulphur mines of Conil de la Frontera, in Cádiz, where ophitic bodies outcrop between Triassic sedimentary rocks, specifically in the Keuper facies. A specimen difficult to find nowadays on the commercial mineral circuit.
