Prehnite was first discovered in the late 1700s by Dutch colonial governor Hendrik Von Prehn and was named after him. Prehnite can be found in many places around the world including India, South Africa, Australia, Russia, and China.
Prehnite is a stone with a beautiful green to yellow-green color. It has an orthorhombic crystal structure and typically forms in botryoidal or globular masses. Prehnite usually has a vitreous luster, though its transparency can vary from translucent to opaque. The hardness of this mineral ranges from 6 - 6.5 on the Mohs scale, making it quite durable for many applications such as jewelry and carvings. Prehnite can also be found in various shapes including flat plates and elongated needles which are often found within geodes or cavities within limestone deposits.
Prehnite is a powerful crystal with many metaphysical properties. It can facilitate contact with impalpable entities via the visualization process and through meditation. Prehnite can also be used to multiply energy and enhance one’s protective fields, making it an ideal stone for gridding operations which seek to bring the structure of coherence and protection into the environment. Additionally, Prehnite enhances one's inner "knowing" while in a meditative state, allowing them access to prophetic visions that are usually accurate and precise when done for spiritual growth or furtherance of others. Finally, this crystal is known as “the stone for dreaming and remembering” as its vibrations create vivid dreams full of healing messages from spirit guides.
