The contrast between the rich saturated green of the botryoidal prehnite balls and the black (actually dark green) epidote crystals on this piece is stunning.  The epidote is shiny and lustrous, and the green prehnite has a lower luster.  This specimen comes from the diggings in the Kayes Region of Mali, which appears to have stopped producing specimens, as there was no new material to be seen at Tucson 2019.
