Prehnite is a little known gemstone with a rather unique color which has been more popular with collectors searching for new and unusual specimens than with jewelry makers although this is beginning to change.

Prehnite Colors

Prehnite is often described as 'apple green' and is usually found within a range of light to medium green although some yellowish, brownish or even orange tints can also occur.

Prehnite gemstones are very often translucent rather than transparent and this cloudy clarity softens the colors considerably giving them a velvety or mossy appearance.

The Magic of Prehnite Crystals

Prehnite crystals are often associated with spiritual insight, intuition, and peace. Known to enhance meditation and inner knowledge, these green gemstones have found a place in the heart of many spiritual practitioners. Whether used in jewelry or as a part of healing rituals, Prehnite's metaphysical properties continue to enchant.

Prehnite Species

Natural Prehnite is supposedly the first gemstone to be named after a person - way before Kunzite, Alexandrite or Morganite.

Early on it was thought to be an emerald, then peridot and still later, a tourmaline before its hydrated calcium aluminum silicate chemical formation was properly identified.

Hendrik von Prehn was the governor of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa and a keen amateur naturalist and mineralogist. Von Prehn came across this mineral in the Karoo dolerites in 1774 and samples found their way to famous German geologist Gottlob Werner. He named this new discovery, Prehnite, after von Prehn in 1788.

Prehnite Price

Prehnite is basically a green gemstone although there are some which appear more yellow or more blue. The prices do not vary dramatically from color to color - it is the clarity and intensity of the individual stone that may raise the price.

While a classic apple green may be the ideal for a Prehnite, value for money will come down to a personal choice. These gemstones are not very expensive and if you like the look of a yellow cabochon with soft opaque clarity then that is the best buy.

Prehnite gemstones tend to be smooth cabochon cuts - domed tops and flat bottoms - as this shows-off the color and the translucent softness at its best although some faceted gemstones are also available.

Green Glow: The Beauty and Variations of Prehnite Gemstones

The gentle green hue of Prehnite makes it a unique and captivating gemstone. The color can range from pale mint green to a richer, yellowish-green, depending on the presence of iron. Sometimes, inclusions of Epidote may create dark green threads within the stone, adding to its complexity and charm.

Prehnite Price: Factors Influencing the Price of the Gem

The price of Prehnite gemstones varies widely based on factors such as color, clarity, size, and overall quality. Rare variations with vivid green colors and unique patterns may command higher prices.

Carat Weight

The vast majority of Prehnite gemstones weigh between 1 and 10 carats and anything much bigger is quite rare. That being said, the price per carat pretty much remains the same no matter the size - it is the brightness of color and the clarity that will determine the cost.

Lighter colored stones can be from as little as a dollar or two per carat while the best colored versions may rise to $5 - $10 per carat.

Care and Maintenance Tips for Prehnite Crystals

Prehnite is a relatively soft gemstone, and proper care is essential to maintain its beauty. Avoiding harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and physical abrasion is key to preserving the stone's luster. Regular gentle cleaning with mild soap and water can keep your Prehnite crystals looking their best.

I had a great time searching all the lovely stones. This is my first precious loose stone purchase for my own work. I chose sapphire, and found some lovely briolettes. I wanted 3, but this set of 4 was perfect. Everything was quick and easy, and I'm excited.
