Gypsum var. Selenite

Specimen # 200224
Mineral: Gypsum var. Selenite
Location: Naica, Saucillo Municipality, Chihuahua, Mexico
Size: 11.1 x 8.4 x 5.6 cm


Detailed Description

A cabinet specimen wtih sharp, lustrous, water-clear selenite crystals on matrix. Of the two larger crystals, the one on the left (from the optimal display angle, the first photo) has a termination which I believe was shaped by partial contact with another crystal, but it is so clean and has striations, it looks complete. In excellent condition, a couple of tiny rubs. Sits perfectly for dipslay as photographed. Looks super!
