I found this quartz this spring and I'm not sure if it's a prasiolite? This location is known for finding rutile.

It look to me as a Quartz with inclusions of some amphibole. Please read: Quartz variety: Prase

You are right Jordi, I can see thin crystals like needles with a 60-x magnifier but I can not photograph them, probably Arfvedsonite. This location is close to a Crn Kamen and there is Arfvedsonite in everything.Thanks.
