4.4" Twinned Selenite Crystals (Fluorescent) - Red River Floodway

The very gemmy, honey colored crystals are large and nearly pristine with the entire piece measuring 4.4" across.

These crystals rare crystals are unique to the locality and are formed in the underground claw when water carrying selenite evaporates under certain conditions. Every crystal is unique, just like a snowflake. Typically these crystals are found 3-6 meters underground requiring substantial excavation work.
