This piece features blocky, lustrous, dark green atacamite crystals, with a beautiful water-clear gypsum (var. selenite) crystal perched in the vug, over top of some of the atacamites. Looking at the sharp atacamite crystals through the selenite, it's almost as if they were under water, or trapped in ice - very cool. In excellent condition. Stands perfectly for display as photographed. This is a great specimen.
