New Gemstone Prehnite Beads

is an inosilicate of calcium and aluminum. It is a translucent green stone sometimes containing dark needle-like inclusions. Its first mention in history was around 1788, where it was assumed to be found in Karoo dolerites of Cradock, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa, but has since been found in Australia. It was named for Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn who was a commander of the military forces of the Dutch colony at the Cape of Good Hope from 1768 to 1780. Prehnite helps balance the solar plexus chakra and the heart chakra and is the ideal when used in meditation, or during times that require self-discipline, it evokes a stable and calm mindset.
