Light green slice.

My guess is Prehnite.

What do you think?

It scratches glass. The little dots are reddish-brown.

 

Thx,

Renata

It has the radial habit and the right color of prehnite, though I have never seen a prehnite sliced in that manner before. Where did you get it from? What's its origin?

Thx, Hershel, for the conformation.

I bought a box full of minerals 2 years ago, I still have lots to identify.
So I don't know how or where. Google images does show some slabs.

I have more slabs, different minerals; might have been a person who tumbled and polished for a hobby. (As there are half tumbled and half polished minerals in the box too.)

Thx again Hershel!
