Prehnite’s bright, almost luminescent, swirling green colors (reminiscent of jade), mesmerizing clarity and striking luster, make it an extremely attractive collector’s gem. In his book, Gemstones of the World, Walter Schumann describes prehnite as a transparent to translucent gemstone, which accounts for its “cloudy” appearance. This is totally normal and like many gemstones, its distinctive appearance is key to its appeal. While its main colors are a range of pleasant greens that are often unique to prehnite, yellow, grey, colorless or white varieties also exist. Prehnite has some interesting common names including “grape jade” (in China it is called putao yü, meaning grape jade, due to crystal formations that look like a bunch of grapes), cape emerald (for the location of its discovery and visual similarities to emeralds) and prediction stone
Prehnite is usually found in cavities along fractures of basalt. The Australian deposits occur in scattered outcrops of Antrim Plateau Volcanics of early Cambrian age (about 570 million years old) and consist of massive basalt up to 197 feet thick. Although the primary Australian deposits cover thousands of square miles in the east Kimberley (Western Australia) and the adjoining Northern Territory, gem quality prehnite is very scarce.
