Gypsum (Var: Selenite)
Cabinet, 9.7 x 8.2 x 4.6 cm
Guangdong Province, China
A gorgeous and totally stereotypic cluster for "ram's-horn" selenite. This quality is seen out of Morocco occasionally, and a few other places, but I had not yet seen any of this habit in quality, from China. It was bound to be there, but seems to not be common as opposed to more typical crystallized selenite. These ram's horns are glistening, like wet sugar, and totally pristine and undamaged.
