Beautiful light honey-coloured contact twin of selenite on a ball of selenite crystals from this contemporary classic Canadian locality. The top twin is mostly water-clear transparent with a few cloudy inclusions in spots.
About these Selenites
Just a note if you are not familiar – selenites require care. Selenite is a very soft mineral, and it does not love water (surface lustre will dull over time with exposure to water – not one time, but repeated times in running water or soaking in water). Selenite also dislikes sudden temperature changes. (Definitely no running this specimen under a stream of hot water unless your goal is to see new cleavage planes and frost the lustre…).
