M811 Selenite Rose

M811 Selenite Rose

$6.00

Here is something different for the mineral collector, a nice Selenite Rose specimen.  This material has a unique appearance much like a frosted pine cone cluster in normal light and has a pale blue color under SW UV light and a pretty silvery white under a LW UV light.  This specimen measures approximately 1 3/4″ x 2″.  Very cool!

This is a similar to like item as they are all very close to appearance and size you will receive one.
