Prehinite is a silicate mineral form of calcium and aluminum. It frequently forms small crystals in curved composites. It is frequently found n veins and cavities of basaltic rocks, sometimes in granites, syenites, or gneisses. Its color varies from light green to yellow, but also colorless, blue, pink or white. It is used as a gemstone.
