#39 / GYPSUM var. Selenite - Virginia, USA
Locality: King George Co., Virginia
Size: 8.5 x 4.5 x 4 cm
A large Selenite cluster from this long closed location. Specimens this size were almost always broken removing them from the dense plastic clay matrix. This is a complete cluster featuring large 'swallowtail' crystals with smaller ones radiating out from the center. Collected in the very early 1980's it is in the top 1% of all that I ever collected.
