Selenite - optically clear stacked crystals
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.8 x 4.5 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


Sharp and transparent crystals of Selenite in an aligned cluster. These are textbook perfect in form, and oddly enough show no signs of true twinning which is the more common habit. As seen this is in fine condition, no damage but some very minor edge wear is noted just to be comprehensive. Selenite is not rare at all but super fine clear crystals like this are really uncommon. The stack of individual crystals is perfectly oriented and a nice example of epitaxy.
