Prehnite was discovered in South Africa in 1774, and was named after it's discoverer, a Dutch Colonel named Hendrik Von Prehn. Prehnite is the first mineral to be named after a person. It is a fairly strong crystal with a rich green color. Prehnite is now considered to be within the phyllosilicate category, and is composed of silicon, calcium, aluminum, and a trace amounts of iron.
