Prehnite

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.

Prehnite Species

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 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.

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.

Treatments

Most Prehnite gemstones are not treated in any way other than the usual cutting and polishing into gemstones.

We have not seen it in action but Prehnite can sometimes emit water when heated!

Where is Prehnite found?

South Africa, Namibia and Australia are the main sources of Prehnite gemstones.

What jewelry is Prehnite suitable for?

Prehnite is rated at 6 - 6.5 on Mohs hardness scale which is considered medium durability for jewelry use. Rings would be recommended to have protective settings and bracelets may not be a good idea but earrings, pendants and brooches should not be a problem and its use as a spiritual crystal is unaffected.

Through my Gemology course at OSU, I found this website and thought it's layout was appealing, as well as the amount of gems that are offered. Purchasing one was easy and simple, and I'll most likely do it again some time.

I was in the market for a replacement gemstone for a solitaire ring that I recently purchased. I was delighted to locate GemSelect as an option for the replacement gem. They have an impressive selection of gemstones! I ordered a citrine trillion cut gemstone. The pictures of the gemstones appear accurate in terms of color and size . The prices are appropriate for the quality of stones I've received. I will continue to shop with GemSelect and will recommend them to anyone in the market for gemstones.

I ordered 4-2 ct oval ruby and sold the first one by lunch time and then 2 more by the end of the week. tripled my money and the clients were all quite happy. BTW I believe in full disclosure, i.e., the client knew they were fusion filled.
