Prehnites are found in colors of light green, dark green, mint-green, yellowish-green, brownish-green, and bluish-green. They can be translucent to almost transparent. Prehnite is named after Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn (1733–1785), a Dutch commander of the military forces of South Africa who brought Prehnite specimens from South Africa to Europe. Sources include India, China, Australia, Africa, the United States, and a few occurrences in Europe.  Fun fact: The most well-known prehinte locations in the US are in northwestern New Jersey.
Pronounced either prey-night or pren-ite.
