DescriptionGYPSUM VAR. SELENITE
Santa Eulalia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdán
4.92 x 3.54 x 2.38 inches (12.5 x 9 x 6.05 cm)
Selenite is just the crystalline form of the rather common mineral Gypsum. Often, it is just a sheet of clear layers but can occur in some spectacular forms as in the case of this incredible specimen. Twin, large "ram's horns" of sparkling white Gypsum curl back off this piece in amazing fashion surrounded with smaller and truncated crystals. Impressive from front or back, depending on how it is displayed, this piece of milky white curvature on a natural matrix base has minor damage on the largest crystal.
