Item Description

This is a sharp cluster of the textbook selenite material from Naica, in Mexico, that has been famous for decades. This is common material at some level, but here we have a particularly exceptional specimen for aesthetics because of the geometry of the parallel blades. It probably dates from the 1970s or 1980s and is in remarkably fine condition.
