Prehnite in Appearance & History
Prehnite is a pale yellow-green stone made primarily of calcium and aluminum.Some forms have iron in them as well, which causes a darker orange-yellow colour, but the majority are quite pale and milky, not at all see-through. The first recorded description of prehnite is from 1788, where Colonel Hendrick von Prehn discovered it in Cape Province in South Africa. It was named after von Prehn, who was the commander of the Dutch military forces in South Africa, and who was quick to introduce the gemstone into South Africa’s booming trade in gemstones (remember, South Africa is one of the main sources of diamonds in the modern world). It has been used by Shamanistic religions in South Africa for thousands of years, but since it was only described to Western scholars in the 1780s, this stone is a relatively new addition to the field of crystology.
