Gypsum (Var: Selenite), Chrysocolla
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 6.0 x 5.0 cm
Lily Mine (Lilly Mine), Pisco Umay, Ica Department, Peru

The big selenite crystal you are looking at is so clear that you see right through it to the chrysocolla inclusions inside! This is a razor-sharp crystal on a superbly-trimmed matrix. It is difficult to see the form of the crystal from the pic, since it is so clear.but it is not thin; it is a flattened rhombohedron, leaning back on the matrix. Better in person, really DRAMATIC, in person and you will love this piece; guaranteed! 9 x 6 x 5 cm
