Selenite (golden gemmy)
Salinas de Otuma, Otuma Village, Paracas, Pisco, Pisco Province
Ica, Peru
3.6 x 3.8 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $260
Spring 2020

The yellow to orange "golden" Selenites from Ica were rather common at mineral shows 20 years ago. There have not been new finds for some time and good, undamaged examples are now quite scarce. These still represent a very good value for a colorful, display quality specimen. This piece is from a small lot that has been in storage since the mid seventies. Sharp, glassy transparent crystals to 2.5 CM tall stand out from the matrix. In perfect condition, in person this is far more clear and very lustrous.
