This magnificent specimen c consists of what appear to be 2 Selenite crystals that are almost perfectly intergrown with each other. Either that, or this piece is made up of a single crystal that has a very odd termination. It has excellent form, however, with well-defined edges and clean but striated faces that show a bright, pearly-to-vitreous luster. It is colorless and transparent, and moderately clear. It also contains a perfectly-formed phantom that appears to be made of a thin layer of limonite. This phantom has such good form that it even imitates the exact shape of the odd termination that stopped growing almost 3.5" (8.9 cm) from it (see the close-up image)! Close examination will show that there is another, fainter phantom between the limonite phantom and the crystal's termination that is made up of either air bubbles or tiny, white selenite sprays that were overgrown. This is one of the most impressive Selenite specimens that I have ever beheld!
