Just a natural jewel! A superb, well-formed radial cluster Selenite crystals, with the largest being 1.6 cm across. The blocky habit is very rare, and to find each and every one of the crystals in this cluster to be absolutely water-clear is rarer still. These formed in the clay beds of the Red River Floodway near Winnipeg, as floater balls of crystals. Under UV light, this beautiful Selenite crystal fluoresces green. In addition, it phosphoresces after the UV light is turned off. Sharp, beautiful, and aesthetic.
