The combination of Prehnite with Epidote is often referred to as 'Cape Emerald' due to its origin from Cape Province in South Africa. Historically used by indigenous shamans of South Africa for advanced healing rituals, this unique stone has gained cultural significance worldwide among healers and spiritual seekers.


Its distinctive color comes from small amounts of iron present within the mineral composition which results in varying shades of green. The special physical feature that sets this stone apart is the visible inclusion of dark green epidote within pale-green prehnite - an intriguing contrast creating a captivating appearance.


Beyond being simply decorative pieces, these stones have been utilized over centuries for their metaphysical attributes. Wearing jewelry made from this powerful duo could aid emotional balance, increase personal power, enhance intuition whilst keeping you grounded.
