This mineral was discovered in 1774 at the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. Named in 1788 in honor of Hendrik Von Prehn. Von Prehn was a governor of Cape of Good Hope. He was a naturalist and mineral collector who brought the first specimens of his namesake mineral to Europe. A considerable mystique and folklore have surrounded Prehn and prehnite. It has been claimed that prehnite was the first mineral named for a person.

Prehnite is considered a “stone of dreaming”; it is believed to increase the power of the dream state, strengthen lucid dreaming and promote communication with other planes of existence. It is also considered a “stone of prophecy,” with long use by indigenous peoples of South Africa.
