Prehnite is creamy green, and its English name is derived from its discoverer in the 18th century, the Dutch colonel Hendrik von Plehanen. Prehnite is usually radiating clumps or grapes, and occasionally plate-like crystals coexisting with basalt and feldspar are seen. Prehnite was originally considered a subspecies of emerald or olivine. Prehnite is mostly found in South Africa and has been called Cape of Good Hope Emerald and Cape of Good Hope Olivine for some time.
