Prehnite is a inosilicate of calcium and aluminium in the structure. Its colour varies from light green to yellow, but also colourless, blue or white. It is mostly translucent, and rarely transparent. Prehnite crystallizes in the orthorhombic crystal system with a hardness of 6-6.5. Very rarely will it form distinct, well individualized crystals showing a square-like cross-section, like those found at the Jeffrey Mine in Asbestos, Quebec, Canada. It is brittle with an uneven fracture and a vitreous to pearly lustre. In April 2000, a rare orange Prehnite was discovered at the famous Kalahari Manganese Fields in South Africa. The first finds was made in the Kalahari Fields but its more commen in the Wave Hill Station area in Australia. Prehnite got its name from the Dutch commander Hendrik von Prehn,who made the first descoveries in the Cape provins in the 18th century.

Prehnite is thought to strenghten to personel protection field, dreams and memory. Prehnite is the rock of unconditional love. It stands for strenght and love.
